    cut object in half animation?

    Hi.

    Im trying to make an object that i can animate to look like it is cut in half by some scissors, any clues how to achieve this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe create your object having two distinct halves, and modeling a morph target version of the object seperated in two.

    If you are using Lightwave 8, so check it out :- Cloth Dynamics demo video- http://www.newtek.com/products/light...uct/demos.html

    Thanks,

    So are you saying morph target 2 objects which intersect and "look" like they are being cut?

    Im still a lightwave 7.5er

    Cloth dynamics is LW8 only. In 7.5 You could do it either with one object layer or two. essentially you'd be looking at 1 morph target which is the cut in half version.

    You might also be able to use the Layout bend tool in Object Properties -> Deform -> Deform Bend on a two object setup to do the cut effect.
