I would like to make a film for presenting a micro-technology process in the fabrication of a laser diode chip. It is my first Blender project and I am wondering how I should organize the scenes.
The process is a succession of many steps which occur successively at the surface of the component : deposition of a layer of material (silicon, photoresist, silica, nitride, …), etching of a part of this layer (leaving holes in the layer), deposition of the next layer of material, etching of a part of that layer, …
Shall I create a new scene for every new deposition and etching ? Or shall I use only one scene and place the different elements in a hidden layer and make them appear/disappear successively ?
Generally speaking, when shall I want to add another scene ? as soon as a few elements change or only when the majority of the environment changes ?
