Help animating a logo with boolean
show user profile  FJMSoft
Hello, I want to create a party logo in 3d, this is the original:

and I want to animate the wave, so, I copied the entire letters using Line, one line to make the letters and other to the letters outer part, extruded both, created 2 boxes, one over other both with wave modifier and made a boolean, the lower box to letter outer, the upper box to letters both set to intersection, well, for a single frame it is very good, I want to animate Wave phase of the boxes, but when I render the movie, in some frames the letters open, like glitches, how can I solve this? are a better way to do this? Thanks:

stay away from boolean, it messes up the mesh.

How else would you suggest he do this then?

Are you sure you've got the waves of both boxes perfectly synced? All I can think of.

use the garment maker on the splines, add a shell modifier.
Use enough detail from the garment maker so it's smooth enough to bend.
