The Hide animation makes nodes disappear at the current keyframe, and stay hidden up until the end keyframe. This is done via the visibility of nodes and not via their transparency. Basically, this animations combines Shown and Hidden consecutive animations into one.

Adding the animation#

First, choose nodes that you want to hide.

Then, double-click on the Hide animation effect in the Animation panel of the Animator.

This animation has 3 keyframes:

  • between keyframes 1 and 2 the specified nodes will stay visible
  • at the keyframe 2 the specified nodes will disappear and between keyframes 2 and 3 they will stay hidden

Move the keyframes of the animation as needed.


You can always move the keyframes of the animation.


In the movie we use the Animation menu which is no longer present in SAMSON. You can access all animations via the Animation panel in the Animator (1) and all presentation actions via the Animator's controls.

You can change how the parameters are interpolated between the frames by modifying the Easing curve.
