Your description is too vague so no one can answer it. You need to describe it in more detail.

I'm sorry .. Many thanks ..

I have logo let say ,, Lightwave ,, and then I want the texture to be coating it with null , in the same time the logo is transparency ..
I hope I describe all ..

I think more details are needed. So you want to paint the texture onto an object that's invisible. So the object is just there for reference? Similar to putting clothes on an invisible person. You never see the person but you can tell that a person is there based on how the clothes are draped on them.

Many thanks to you alll ...

yes , nickdigital ,, like what you said and when you apply the null with the coating I want all the logo fully appear ,,,

thanks , XswampyX : but not like this I want the coating cover each letter from first polygon until cover the full letter and then jump to the next letter start from the first polygon until complete the last polygon in the same letter ,, and after complete each letter this letter stay appear not transparencies..

I hope I fully describe my needs ,,

thanks guys for helping ..

P.S: I tried to apply clipmap I failed,, I tried to apply a texture with texture map also I failed ,.,, I stock guys in this idea,,,

Just make your null range bigger. So it covers all of the word 'LIGHTWAVE'

Dear XswampyX:
thank you for this describes ,,
maybe I'll give more details about the project Let take one letter for example.

Let say letter L ,, if I want to apply a texture but I want the texture to start from the beginning of this letter covering the letter until ending of the letter ..
at the end I have complete appear with texture letter L ..

You mean like a simple image map fade, from left to right?

Dear XswampyX:
No not regular fade but I need wrap the letter with texture ,, ( animation wrapping ) .. I'm sorry for my language ,, but I'm trying to explain the project
the L letter in extrude and then try to imagine that this letter must be covered with wrap color but in animation color covering this letter like when you fill it with water but not from inside from outside...
I hope this will help ..

try to imagine that you fill the letter with water,, but fill it from outside not inside , in the same time the letter transparency ,,,

not with fade ,, you did very well in fade but not what the need...

hummmmmm , hello

nnabdu, you keep posting scene files without the objects, so it is very hard to tell what you mean or want.
