I have a soccer ball moving in a spline type motion path, and I want to reveal an object as it passes over it.

Tried the clip map method with a gradient texture and distance from X but, because of the shape of the motion it does not reveal the way I want.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Try using object desolve in the object property panel. This can have an envelope on it so it will appear at the key frame you want.

That is how I ended up doing it. Did not really look the way I wanted but it will work for now.

Thanks

Theres a couple of free animated boolean plugins (check flay.com) and you can use an effect or morph to make an object appear to grow or reveal itself.
