consider me a beginner:

I am trying to animate an object(fuse) erasing while burning. Can this be done by passing an object that subtracts from the fuse as it moves along it?

If yes, then how?....I'm sure this is simple


thanks,

You could use a texture as a clip map....

Otherwise look for shift_boolean texture on www.flay.com
This does animated booleans

check the tutorials on the lightwave page. There is a good one on how to use a clip map with a target object to do what you are describing.
