don't think there's any special tricks, just animate the scene in order to bring in content as required.

might need to introduce some object specific clipping planes so blocks slide in from nowhere.

start simple. get a couple of blocks transitioning as you want, then work from there.

There's no automatic way of doing this. I wouldn't expect a tutorial either really.

But, there's nothing difficult in there other than hard work. You will have to animate slice planes for the individual objects. It's quite a bit of work, but not that difficult.

slice modifier in max apparently.

someone plz correct if there's a better way of doing this.

could script up a sequence that specifies how a series of objects transition via a file that defines this. no idea if something like that already exists.

like nik says, probably easier to animate it by hand unless you have a lot of this work to do.

I did something vaguely similar for work, I ended up naming every object in the desired order of appearance (1, 2, 3...) and then made a simple script using the names to animate everything.
If you plan to have different kinds of "blend modes", e.g. fading in, falling from the sky, you could perhaps add an letter to the names. For instance 1A, 2A and 3A will fall from the sky, then 4B, 5B and 6B will fade in, 7A and 8A will fall from the sky...

Here's what your script could look like, using the 1A naming method:

startframe = 10
fade_duration = 25
fade_interval = 10

for i in selection do
index = (substring 1 ( - 1)) as integer
fade_type =[]

with animate on
if fade_type == "A" then
at time 0 i.scale = [0.0, 0.0, 0.0]
at time (startframe + (index - 1) * fade_interval) i.scale = [0.0, 0.0, 0.0]
at time (startframe + (index - 1) * fade_interval + fade_duration) i.scale = [1.0, 1.0, 1.0]
else if fade_type == "B" then
at time 0 i.pos.z += 100.0
at time (startframe + (index - 1) * fade_interval) i.pos.z += 0.0
at time (startframe + (index - 1) * fade_interval + fade_duration) i.pos.z -= 100.0

not me. I'm in the 3 spaces per level camp. still tabs aren't bad, then you can set how you like.

Tab all the way. Three spaces would save horizontal screenspace however..

It looks fine in Maxscript, I think it actually equals three spaces there.

did a project just like this about 6 months ago for my company. all the above suggestions are good. You could also animate the opacity or object visibility to get a similar effect assuming your using basic shaders for your model.

Good luck!

>Sir, you indent like a Frenchman.
Now I'm offended :\

The huge tab thing is a browser problem. For some reason, browser writers finds it funny to assign 80 or so whitespaces per tab.
I mean '2D browser' writers, of course.
