HI there… I’m trying to animate the visibility on objects in my scene. Since I don’t know how to do it, I’ve been trying to animate the Alpha on the materials. However, this isn’t solving the problem, as the objects still cast shadows and are showing specularity/etc. If I just want the whole object to disappear at some point in time, how do I accomplish that?
I did see a post about animating a layer, but I don’t know how to do that.
Also… if I want to change/animate a property on an object that has several sub-materials on it, is there anyway to do that with one change that affects all of the sub-materials or do you need to go into each one and change/keyframe the property? I’m just wondering if there’s a “master” change you can make that affects all sub-materials…
Thanks for any help!
