ladies and gentlemen, can someone help me to figure out how to create foot print in the sand and animate it? just like the "ibeach" type of foot print, i am using LW V8, please help!

I'm lazy, so I'm not going to go in depth about it, but I'll say this "soft body dynamics". Some will say this is a horrid way to do it- but it's easy to get LW's soft body dynamics to act like taffy, water, and snow- I figure sand can't be to far off if you add a few of those 8.3 hyper voxels to spruce it up. And when you're working with LW's softbody dynamics (the cloth ones) be sure to only change a few things at a time- dont' go hog wild with the input or you'll end up with a mess in no time.

I'm sure someone like HowardM will be happy to give you six ways of doing it that work great and work like a charm!

Easiest and fastest way is thru morphs.

using your beach, just make the area you want footprint a higher poly count for smoother print shape, make a new morph called footprint.1, move the polys down a bit that form the shape of a foot.
Do as many as you want calling them each 1 higher 'footprint.2,footprint.3' and so on.
then in layout just morph your print at the frame needed.

I'm with prospector, morph is the way to go. One step further is to use SmartMorph to animate it. Then you just need one morph and a null moving along to product the footprints

You could also do it with displacement maps.

A real simple way would be to create an animated texture map of footprints being created or revealed and then applying that as a displacement map.
