I am trying to get objects to animate (rotate 90) one after the other (like dominos falling) down a line. Any suggestions on how to control this as simply as possible with main modifying control as opposed to doing them all individually. Can you do animations 'on event',

This seems like something that should be very doable but my brain is not coming up with it today.

Any idea?

thanks

Probably a better illustration is at a football game, a section of the crowd will raise signs to form a large image. I want to have the individual panels 'reveal' from left to right as opposed to completely random order.

KURV has a DVD that shows some very simple methods on how to quickly achieve effects like that.

The effect can be driven by an sort of texture in LW...avi files , procedurals etc as in this example:

Youll need to register at vfxcast.com to view it. :)

That video seems pretty close to what I'm looking for. The link for the video is giving me some sort of error though, not sure if it's just me or what. Thanks for the reply.
