Hi guys, I think I saw somewhere a tutorial about how to animate an object visibility along path but I can't find it. I am trying to animate a simple scene where the road is appearing in front of you as the camera is moving forward. Can you please send me a link for that video or give me a few advices how to do it with ATK ?

Hi Tomino

You can try this as simple setup.

1. Use a spline to draw your path
2. Create a sphere Gizmo and constrain this to the spline using a path constraint
3. Create a square plane and use spacing tool to position this evenly along your path, make sure to set as copy
4. Copy one of the Planes and animate the visibility from 1.0 to 0.0
5. Open ATK
6. Create a Copy Keys device to copy the keys from the animated plane to all of the planes that make the path
7. Create a Shift device change method to Gizmo and select the constrained gizmo run this on the planes.

Here is the 2016 Setup

Hope it helps.
