thanks for ur reply
i'm doing the same thing but when i'm animating the alpha map which is created using the ramp, in which the 0 frame is fully black and last frame is fully white , the transperency can not be applied onto it .
I'm able to do without animating the texture
i had also tried the layer texture , but i was not able to get the output.
so plz help me out
