In cases like this, the most helpful thing to see would be a storyboard.

Ok well what i mean is
I have a scean of a room and everything
is textures.

A glass with ice will fall to the floor and the ice will melt.
Ice will start to spread thru the room and everything will be coverd
with ice texture. Like everything freezes.

I will animate this so how can i make it grow from the glass with ice thru the room.
hope this make it easyer to understand.
