Name Type By
objVisibility({t}, val, duration, easing) Definition AFRLme

This small function allows you to quickly adjust the visibility of multiple scene objects, which can be useful for setting up scenes without having to create tons of set visibility action parts.


1. Add the main script to the Visionaire Studio Script Editor & set the script as a definition script.
2a. Usage example #1: immediately update the visibility of all listed scene objects to 0

objVisibility({"obj1",  "obj2", "obj3"}, 0)

2b. Usage example #2: update the visibility of all listed scene objects in the linked table to 50% over 250ms with easeQuadOut easing

local tbl = {"obj1", "obj2", "obj3"}

objVisibility(tbl, 50, 250, easeQuadOut)

Main Script

function objVisibility(t, val, duration, easing)
  duration = duration or 0 -- fallback in case duration equals nil or empty
  easing = easing or easeLinearInOut -- fallback in case easing equals nil
  -- + --
  for i = 1, #t do -- iterate through the tables
    game.CurrentScene.Objects[ t[i] ]:to(duration, {Visibility = val}, easing) -- update visibility of currently listed scene object
