Hello. I'm sure this must be possible but I've no idea where to start. How do I make an object more or less visible in relation to the camera's distance from it?

Or to put it simply I want it to appear to gradually dissolve into nothing as the viewer gets further away. Thanks.

Transparency based on gradient that is scaled to the distance from your camera?

you could also do an object dissolve based on distance depending on your needs. (in the Object-Properties-Render settings)

Or, you could get clever and use a background-color fog, and set the rest of your objects to ignore the fog. That way, when your object fades away, you won't see internal bits of it, which can be ugly.
