2nd)  By using the ScriptIDE tab I was able to run the MatAnim script but it didn’t work.  The window popped up but none of the buttons would change to “animatable” when clicked.

Edit: - It doesn’t always work. I’ve sent a PM to Casual, but I don’t know if the PM system is working, as there’s nothing in my Sent folder. Maybe you could try too.

If you look at the picture, I did:

1. Click SkinTorso
2. Click Opacity Strength
3. Click Make Property Animatable.

And the Opacity Strength changed from false to true. I then clicked Exit.

Then I selected the torso with the surface selection tool, went to the Timeline tab, went to frame 0, changed the opacity to 0. Then went to frame 30 and changed the opacity to 100.

The torso animates from transparent to opaque in one second.

i did a quick test on daz studio 4.5 pro 64 bit and it seemed to work well

daz studio 4.5’s surface selection tool can be tricky,

just moving it around a bit will change what’s selected ... maybe even while you’re “in” matAnim

i’m not sure if it’s essential, but it’s probably to select the object, and select the surface
