View Full Version : Mesh Animation help needed

07 July 2005, 06:58 AM
Hi all

I am more or less still a noobie to lightwave. I am having problem figuring out how to animate an object from a wireframe object to a textured object. :shrug:
Any help or constructive ideas are appreciated.

Typically, one does this using a video editing package in post.

But I guess you can do it directly in LW aswell if you want to... Just have two objects, one set up as wireframe, the other as textured. Then just animate Object Dissolve (in Object Properties panel, Render tab).

You could also do it in steps. Render out the wireframe version first. Place it in the background, then render the textured version ontop of that using object Dissolve.

In other words, there are lots of ways.
