Reveal atoms

The Reveal atoms animation makes atoms (and bonds between them) appear progressively between two frames. This is done via the visibility of nodes and not via their transparency.

Adding the animation

First, choose atoms and bonds that you want to progressively disappear.

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

This animation has 4 keyframes:

  • between keyframes 1 and 2 all the specified atoms (and bonds between them) will be hidden
  • between keyframes 2 and 3 the specified atoms (and bonds between them) will progressively appear by showing some atoms (and bonds between shown atoms) depending on their order in the selection
  • between keyframes 3 and 4 all the specified atoms (and bonds between them) will be shown

Move the keyframes of the animation as needed.

Note: You can always move the keyframes of the animation.
