    Hi Modellers.

    Currently I creating some modern models like, roads, buildings, bins, signs and what there else can be in a city. I have some question about 3dsmax that I think would be a good thing to know.

    1. How can I make a mesh transparent? - So I can get a window effect?
    2. How can I change the mesh materials like: Transparent, Blend & None.
    2. How can I make a mesh invisible in a speficic animation?

    Thanks for helping me:D
