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

Adding the animation#

First, choose nodes that you want to show.

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

This animation has 3 keyframes:

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

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.
