Keyframe Object Propertie:"Visible to Camera"
show user profile  AlexG
is it possible to Auto Keyframe the Object Propertie:"Visible to Camera"? When I flick it on or off Max doesn't creat an Autokeyframe. I need this option for an Animation: an Object is directly in front of my Camara and clipping does not work. furthermore this objekt creats important shadows for my scene so i can't turn off visibility .
thx for your help
cheers alex

if u reduce visibility the shadwos are reduced,too.

it's not the only object i want to turn off, so your suggestion is possible but not practical :-P i want to render the animation over the weekend so everything has to work without my permanent control :)

because i know no better solution (hope some1 jumps in with 1 :)).. i d do my animation twice, on the same timeline, first with the normal animation, and second, the exact same animation but with the visibility turned off (on a duplicate object; also i d move the original object away from view in frame 1 of the second animation).. by the end of the weekend i d have 1 set of frames, which i d be able to split in half and put together in after effects or some similar software :)
