I'm kinda new to using Blender Eevee. I used to use Cycles, but that took too long to render. I'm doing a text animation with a video in the background, and I want the text to fade in and fade out. However, I cannot do this because Eevee is different from Cycles. Is there any way I can animate the transparency of an object so I can fade it in and out?

Of course it is. The only "catch" is to change Blend Mode under Material > Settings tab to Alpha Blend and turn off Show Backface.

Then regularly you can animate Factor between your shader and Transparent shader (full white colour).

node setup


Looked for a solution to this question Q: Image bleed when using Import Image as Plane [duplicate] which is linked here.

My proposal: Image as plane w/math-node

I put a math node between image and Mix Shader, set it to multiply. Wit the second value set to 0 the image is not visible. Obviously when I set the second value to one it is fully visible.
