Switching Labels on a Material During An Animation
« on: September 14, 2017, 10:20:07 am »
Is it possible to seamless switch from one label on a material to different label on the same material in an animation? I have tried adding the label as a video, but after I render I end up with a world of new problems (the labels flicker, move for some weird reason...all sorts of weird unexplainable things). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you ever tried a colour fade in the opacity channel?
How quick does the switch should be?
Which KeyShot Version do you use?

Perhaps you can post your example?!

Cheers

I have not tried a color fade in the opacity channel, but I will attempt that next!

The entire animation is only 6.5 seconds long...the first label is up for 3.5 seconds, then would (ideally) instantly switches to a second label for 1.2 seconds, and finally (again, ideally instantly) switch to the third label for 1.8 seconds.

I am using KeyShot Version 7.0.456

Unfortunately, at this time I am unable to post an example because it is of a product that has yet to launch.

Thanks Marco!

Can you post an example of your solution so it will be searchable in the forum?
