Following on from a recent thread about changing material parameters, this is just very quick video to show what is possible for someone with more artistic talent than myself.

It just changes a few parameters, there are only three materials one on each object, everything else is done my AnimationLab.

Added a second example of effect by changing materials a AnimationLab, this is a lot simpler and just alters the materials transparency coverage,  it shows a stores (designed many years ago) and fades the walls whilst moving camera around the building.

The setting is simple material set to plain coverage transparency of 1 by default, then for example frame 101 to 180 ChangeMaterial index = 2, Name = Coverage, value = 1-((StepNum-100)*0.0125).

There are a couple of jerks where the camera moved wrong along the path but its good enough for an example.

Very nice example.

Now if you had swept up prior to filming, you wouldn't have tripped over the debris laying around.  ;)
