Hello.

Is it possible to place 3D on a particular layer in the PDF file?

From the Acrobat DC UI, when I add a 3D it adds to the entire document as the content is not added to a specific layer.

I wonder if there is a way to add 3D via scripting.

Thanks in advance.

Technically, yes, you can assign a 3D Annotation to any layer/OCG that you wish. You will need to use the Plugin API (or the PDFLibrary) to do it, as it involves a low level API.

Hi ,

I don't believe it is possible to add and annot using 3d, or to add a 3d Annot to a specific layer with or without using scripting.

HI,

Of course, I should have thought of that, was too busy focusing in on the JavaScript and the current UI which doesn't appear to let you.

Hi Irosenth,

Thankyou for your quick reply. Just to clarify, the Library SDK is different from the Acrobat SDK correct?

In order to assign 3D annotation to any OCG it requires the Library SDK and not the Acrobat SDK?

HI,

The PDF Library is a little different here is the comparison chart, but both would be able to solve the problem you are asking about,

Adobe PDF Library SDK
