We are using ROS & Gazebo over virtual machine (VMWare Player). The Gazebo camera rendering worked fine in the Gazebo shipped with ROS Hydro. But in Gazebo version shipped with ROS Indigo, the camera plugin is rendering objects in the wrong order. See images here and here.

This problem appears to only happen on Virtual Machines (VMWare Player). This has been reported previously here.

It is important for us to work within Virtual Machine, and because ROS Indigo is a LTS release, we would like to upgrade to ROS Indigo. Is there any solution or workaround for this bug?

I had a similar problem with ROS-Indigo and Gazebo7 over VMWare Station. I put a camera above some blocks. The manipulator was between them and I saw it behind the blocks from the view of camera. Images may be found if that can help.
