View Full Version : Wireframe to solid

How can I make the cable jacket on the right side fade from a wireframe to the solid jacket, to make it look like its bleeding off the print?

Have two copies of the object, have one set to render as wireframes only (in the object properties window), then put gradient transparency on both (running in opposite directions) to fade 'em into each other. Or something like that

Does it have to be in render? You could do like Dsol said, render 2 versions, and then blend it in post.

Compositing is your friend. Render 2 versions and a if you really want a pure 3D blend render a animated matte as well
