View Full Version : Visibility

10 October 2004, 05:55 PM
Dang. For some reason my transparency envelope does not work. I want something to fade in at frame 100 but it shows up in all frames. Is there a different way to say "stay invisible until frame 100 then appear?"

create keys at frame 0 and 99 with the 100% dissolve

i think dissolve renders faster than transparency too.

If you make something 100% invisible, it renders reflections doesn't it?

I think you should use dissolve indeed, but that should work the same way as you did with the invisibility-envelope, it sounds like you did something wrong there...

Dissolve worked perfectly. Thanks all!

If you want to go back to using the transparency envelope make sure you have Ray Trace Transparency checked in the Render Options.
