How to change color.

Postby 3drook » Thu Aug 26, 2010 7:09 pm

I need help on changing an objects color mid animation. such as a red ball turn to green. I can do it in 2.4 but have not figured it out on 2.5. please help.

Remember everything in 2.5 is animatible. In the material tab right click over what you want changed, in this case the diffuse and simply select Insert Keyframe, move the time line and changed the keyframe then insert another keyframe.

I think there is also a way to do it with nodes but I don't have much experience with them.

Hope that helps.

God, my grammar in that post was terrible.

Thanks, happy to help.

If your new to Blender, check out blendercookie.org and blenderguru.com they are very good for beginners. Also consider purchasing something from the blender e-shop (top right of this page) to support further development of Blender.

It may also be wise to look at the Graph Editor (use to be IPO editor). It will allow you to alter how the change is made. It's a useful tool for many things but for any texture or material settings changed during animation it's priceless.
