Hi Ken, Thanks for the detailed reply. I could not get anything out of the settings dialog as per your suggestion. Did you have a combination of those settings that might work for my files?
I can also see the image you sent; that's usually fine. However, I typically apply a Threshold filter to the _basic_ files (Scalar: alive; min: 0.1; max: 1). In this case, the _basic_ object is always drawn in front of the _broken_joint_ object. In addition, I visualize dozens of these files every day so Transforming every single object is a bit tedious.
