Moving object to fade out when clicked
I'm trying to do an animation where a character is walking and you need to click on moving objects around him to make them disappear before they hurt him. When you click on a moving object, I'd like to for that object to fade out instead of just disappearing (i.e. change state to Hidden). However, fade out seems to only activate when the object's timeline ends, not anytime in the middle.
Is there a workaround to this? I'm wondering if anyone's ever done anything liek this before.
