Diagonal Swipe Animation in Blender?

Hey everyone. I was just looking for a second opinion on how to do a diagonal ‘swipe’ in blender. Besides the layering, you can see what I’m talking about here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZX6wuyZzdQ

You see how in the first second, the first orange layer of the orange appears in that sliding swipe? I would like to know how you guys would approach that.
(I really don’t know what to call this, so excuse me if it has an actual name.)


Simplest option is to animate a boolean object that is cut at an angle

Awesome! Thanks so much, it’s exactly what I needed
