# Frame Duplication with Changing transparancy and colors

Is there a way to Change the colors and transparency of previous and post frames using the duplication frames, in object properties?

• what do you mean by saying duplication? did you animate (I keystroke over those properties) the color and the transparency in the properties editor, and then duplicated (Shift+D) the keys in the dopesheet? – Mechanic Jan 5 '19 at 4:22
• If you goto object properties tab and the duplication dropdown, and click frames. In 2.8 its called instances. This will show duplicate the object along its entire motion path. – Nick Sieben Jan 5 '19 at 4:34
• Wow, I've never knew such a feature is there. Thanks. Sadly, I cannot help. – Mechanic Jan 5 '19 at 4:52
• Are you looking for an Animation Nodes solution? – Omar Emara Jan 5 '19 at 11:41
• Ill take an animation nodes solution, Im unsure if there is a non animation nodes solution – Nick Sieben Jan 7 '19 at 1:01

• @NickSieben Well you aren't using the colors we generated in your materials. The colors are stored in vertex color layers, so you have to use the Attribute node with the attribute Col. – Omar Emara Jan 9 '19 at 7:20
• @NickSieben Just add another vertex color layer, call it alpha , color it as you wish, and use it with another attribute node. – Omar Emara Jan 11 '19 at 7:41
