  1. Is it possible to project an ANIMATION in a VOLUMETRIC light?

    LW 2015.3 still:

    I want to project an animation in a volumetric light. The only options for "texture" are (1) Image Map, (2) Procedural Texture, and (3) Gradient. Obviously, I need a fourth...

    @ Ztreem: Thanks for the test. Your sample looks great. My problem is that I have four objects, three of which are MOVING while fading in, all four fading in at different times. This is the first...

    Well, dang it. I spoke too soon. Object Dissolve is "almost" better than good old transparency, but when it goes from 100% dissolve to 99.9% dissolve, the object POPS into the screen, with no...

    Wow. Something is VERY weird. NONE of the ENVELOPES are being saved with the scene file. This is repeatable. I have NO idea why. :-(

    Any ideas?

    Still in 2015.3 ... Problems ...

    I thought a project would be simple and quick, but I ran into a pretty serious dead-end.

    It's a logo with moving parts that fade in -- no big deal. But there is VOLUMETRIC lighting present. This...

    Good idea. Regarding fear of the future, this is not necessarily age-related. I know some guys even older than me (and that's DANG old!) who have NO FEAR of ANYTHING AT ALL. :+)
