  • $\begingroup$ yea but I'm gonna do it a lot so if its gonna be a hassle to do every time then i might need an better method $\endgroup$ – ArmamentArchives Oct 6 '20 at 21:48
  • $\begingroup$ For the object's material, if you add a Value Node, you can click the value field and enter #frame as a value. This will make the value match the value of the frame at any given point. Use this node, plugged in to a Math Node, set to greater than and set the value to 50. Mix your existing material output with a Transparent Shader, (using a Mix Shader) and use the Value/Math Node setup as the mix factor (you may need to invert it first). I'm sorry I can't post an image of the setup, but my GPU died this morning and I can't even open blender without it. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Oct 6 '20 at 21:58
  • $\begingroup$ hey im sorry to hear that about your GPU and thanks your suggestion really helped me alot. $\endgroup$ – ArmamentArchives Oct 6 '20 at 22:56
  • $\begingroup$ Hey no problem. Glad you could figure it out from that mess of instructions. And yeah, we'll say a prayer for my GPU - it's rendered it's final scene.... $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Oct 6 '20 at 23:00

I've seen the answer to this question in this tutorial Blender 2.83 : Grab & Release Weapons (In 60 Seconds!!!) by Royal Skies LLC a while ago.

You can keyframe the object's visibility in the Object Properties, section Visibility. There are 2 checkboxes to control it: Show in Renders and ... Viewports.
