I have blue water in a pipe and I want to extrude this cylinder over time to move down and fill a water pipe. I know how to extrude a shape on a path but is there a way to do this over time?

Regards,

Mike

Assuming you are using an EHL (a loft) to do it, you can just move the target node.

desighthis86, did you mean to put this question in the Design 3D CX forum or in this, the Live 3D CX forum?

@jesmith: Would you mind explaining that method in a little more detail? I have a pretty intermediate Strata skill level, but I dont recognize what you're talking about...sounds handy!

I usually just project the water over my cylinder as a stenciled texture, then move the position over the pipe to reveal it from invisible to visible. (adding more than one version of the texture to the object if it's a really curvy pipe, and I need more than one texture projection moving around to bend it around curves)

Wally_B, jesmith is referring to a method that could be using in Live 3D CX, if that helps.

Thanks Kevco. I thought maybe that was the case.
