Pointcloud transparency

#1

I’d like to make some animations (also fading) of the conversion process from point clouds to geometry. It would be nice if I could fade in and out my sets of point clouds. Is it possible to do so?

I know it’s possible for other geometry types using transparant materials, but is it achievable for pointclouds also?

Unfortunately I don’t see a way how this could be done.
Rhino is not able to fade points, so therefore Bongo is not able to animate something that’s not in Rhino.

Thanks for the unfortunate answer… Then the only possible way to force this behaviour is making spheres of each point? Are there maybe any (less computational demanding) alternatives to these kind of work-arounds?

Yes I think so
