Hello

I need to make a snowman melt. I need to have control over the order of the process, like if the snowman puts his hand close to a flame the hand melts but the arm stays.

Does anyone have a take on this?

many ways, many angles, distances, etc.
narrow it down for us?

a closeup of his hand melting?
realistic, cartoonish?

you could do combos of morphs, clipmaps, particles, endless possibilities ;)

Thanks for the reply.

The idea is to make a little film about a snowman falling in love with a very warm girl and willingly ending his days by kissing the girl.
This will require a closeup of his hand melting and a total of him hugging the girl while perishing.
I am not totally new to lightwave, but defenetly not an expert either.
Just saw your IMDBsite and am part impressed, part intimidated:bowdown:
Anyway, advice will be very helpfull.
