Animating a shader

Postby andrewcromey on 06/7/2019, 7:16 am

Hi,

This might be a really easy fix. What I am trying to do is animate a bunch of training videos for a client. I have a model for a traffic light and I need green to change to red. I'm using the illumination function to show that the light is on but I need to turn off the green and then turn on red. Is this possible? I've been running into issues figuring it out.

There's a few ways to do it but just precompose the custom texture and at the point you need it to change, create a transition between the two textures you need. Viola
