I'm on the hunt for an animated iris opening to use on space ships. I ran across VCP iris using the extrusion tool in 3DS.

Is this something that could be done with masks in HF or is it better to try and use something like Blender to create an actually model?

Just looking at the aperture itself

    I made and animated an Iris in Blender a few years ago.

    I think I used drivers? Can't remember right now but I know that I used Constraints because it would be annoying to do it manually.
