Can you alter the shape of a slice plane to be used for a mask?
show user profile  Spear Chuck
After extruding some faces, how do I use the slice modifier to reveal an object non uniformly, as if there's noise along the plane of the slice? Fire spreading out from a circle is what I'm after like in the clip

Is that a slice modifier being used with animated deformation and noise in it somehow? Or is the fire hiding the slice as it moves?

Those examples were done in after effects with animated masks.

Is there anyway to use the Slice modifier in Max like that, putting noise into the shape?

Why with slice plane?

If you need this to be done in max then use animated mask in logo material.

Would it be to much to ask if you'd be so kind as to record a tutorial for me, please? :)

I'll study some of these in the mean time...

Yeah, you are on a right path.
There is no need to create another tutorial. There are plenty and you are already watching them.
