View Full Version : How to make an object appear?

06 June 2006, 02:57 AM
Hello. I'm quite a noob at 3D animation.

I'd like to ask how do I make something appear in 3D max 7. I dont want to have to move the object out of the screen and move it in when I need it. I think I've seen someone do it before but I dont know how.

Can someone help? Thanks!

Hi there,

There is more than one way too do this, for instance by animating the object visibility in the object properties panel (in the quad) of by using an animated texture in the opacity slot.
The're probably more ways but i can't think of any right now.

Hope this helps
