How to animate transparency (beginner)?

(David Spector) #1

I’ve created a Material with alpha=.5 so it is semi=transparent. But how do I assign it to a selected object? And then how do I make keyframes that specify transparency (alpha) for tweening? I want to make an object gradually appear, both in the 3d view and in rendered output. Blender 2.79b.

I should have asked before if you are using blender 2.8. If not, let me know

I left my comments about your video at the comments for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tyf0NDa3zgE . I could not follow the video. If you want to help further, please choose which comments to use and I will reply there.

I think I need something simpler: just show how to make the cube transparent and what to click to make a keyframe. That’s all I really need. The rest confuses me!
