View Full Version : Partial transparency HELP!

09-23-2010, 01:32 PM
I am creating an animation of tape rolling off of a role. I am using the Technique of morph targets and bones ( found on this link http://www.newtek.com/forums/showpost.php?p=844966&postcount=13 ) thanks Mr Rid for the post. But now I am having trouble getting the tape to be transparent in the proper place. I have tried a verity of Clip Masks and Transparency setting and cannot get it to work. I would normally Render out the two separate objects and composet them together, but I'm being pig headed and wan't to do it all in LW. I have attached the project file and a graphic sowing what it is I want to do.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'd doubt check the parenting. Depending on which way you parent the clip map to the null, it can do some weird things.
