Simple Cutaway animations in LightWave using no plugins

Skill Level: Intermediate / Views: 136 / System Requirements: LW 9+

This revisits an old technique which used a second object to "fill in" the cutaway area. In this version I use nodes to color the back sides of polygons to make it look like the mesh is filled in when really it's just hollow. It's a fake effect and it has some limitations, but it might do what you need it to do.
