fade more than once

Post by mpjensen »

I am not sure if I am doing something wrong or maybe what I am attempting is not possible. I am trying to use the Rose-A and make it 1.5" tall. When I do this the petals look great but the leaves look fat, so I try to fade from the center out, but it only works on one side. Is there a way to do this all the way around the rose so the leaves fade to the outside?

Thanks,
Mike

First, fade only works in a linear fashion, one direction at a time.

I think what CRFultz was referring to, is apply a fade to a component. Then copy that component to the working model and save it as a new component. That will allow you to apply another fade.

Does that make sense?
