In Help said

However, some modifiers can be
turned on and off at different points along
the time line.

, but no words how.

    HI auxdeux ;)

    If you have a modifier which has an On /Off option,.
    that option will be appear in the sequencer time-line,.

    you can set key-frames by changing the on/off at different points in the time-line you can use tweener types to control the changes between keys

    hope it helps. :)

    I don't think on/off can be tweened. Since there is no "partial on" or "easing in" of on.... Settings are either on or off. There is no inbetween state.

    Hi Holly :)

    Yes, you can use Oscillate or noise, ..but you're right, there's not many tween options fr On/Off :)

    yes, I have noticed this too!
    parameter values of modifiers can indeed be tweened but not ticking the off on.
    found this trying flashing lights, 0% to n% what ever can indeed be but not off on.

    The way to get a gradual on/off for lights is not to check the visibility option and try to use a tweener, but to use the slider for the light's brightness, and then setting your tweener. Tweening for absolute on/off type functions is limited as mentioned above by Holly and 3Dage.

    lol! EP, just said that 0% to n% brightness was what I was refering to.
    I said n% because I actually do not know offhand how bright they go, those parameter sliders can mostly have even bigger numbers entered in manually, I have oscillated stuff 100's of time instead of 20 for example.

    Hi everybody. I didn't mean on/off during animation, simply for static figure. :)

    Hi :)

    It would depend on the modifier,. if it has an option to switch it on or off, then that would be a Check-box in the general setting panel.

    Hope it helps :)
