The effect I am trying to achieve is to have an object gradually appear through a piece of old paper, almost like a ghost coming through a wall (or something rising up from water). I have a 2D image that I would like to have extruded so that I can place it in 3D space and alter the paper through Z space. Or is there another way?
At the moment, it's either behind or in front. I want certain parts of the image to come through first, then gradually all the image comes through. I've tried animating masks / scale but it's a bit crude. Is there another way or any other suggestions?
