Hello every body,

I am trying to animate a section plane in order to present a building interior but this is not working. Can anybody help or give a suggestion?

Thank you,

Hi !
I've already done that and it is working for me. Can you tell us exactly what's not working ?

In which way is it not working?

If you animate with Basic Animation Effect, it should work fine.  You can move and rotate and even have more than 1 clipping plane. 

Are you able to place a clipping plane in Build Mode, move it and see the clipping effect?  If so then go to Movie Mode, add a Basic Animation Effect to a clip, then add the plane as the animation object and move up/down etc.

If you get problems, probably best to remove the current plane and start afresh placing it at a point you know is a correct starting point.

Thank you,
It worked with the simple animation, maybe i was using the advanced animation or the scene was too complex and it was snapping here and there.
