I made as well some small change to the script, I hope you don't mind.

Added support of saving the Export Property's to the Model.

If you cancel the export dialog or the save dialog the script stops instantly.

And reduced the filenumber padding to 6 numbers.

And my first Animation with Properanimation + SmoothstepAnim http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agCUtjEJssM

Thanks Jackson, I wish I can learn to do those scripts too
uploaded another test...


take care

Great plug in . . . one thing. I am wandering what the best program is to stitch together the images for a mac. Imovie is driving me crazy and keeps zooming in and out of each individual frame. Any tips?

Quicktime all the way. It works fast and does a very good job.

Whaat, many many thanks for this and the person who replied to my post solving my little artifact problem that the programmers appeared not to be interested in fixing. Great script!

same as any .rb files & theres lots of info on this forum.
download from the first post in this thread, move to 'plugins' folder
if it's hidden you can paste this into 'Ruby Console' under 'Window' menu in Sketchup
Code: Select all
`open "/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 8/SketchUp/Plugins"`
, then hit return/enter
drag the ruby in and restart SU.
learn from the mistakes of others, you may not live long enough to make them all yourself...

Would it be possible to add an attribute to all the existing scenes in the model that they are "keyframes" and then add scenes for every frame in the animation with an attibute that they are "inbetweens" and add scene transition times according to your smoothstep script.
The script should then be able to delete all the "inbetweens" if you want to change the animation but leave the "keyframes" intact.
I believe this would make it work with external renderers.
What do you think, is it doable?

dear sir ,
i m pritish from india , trying to render animation with vray can you make tutorial or may be some image/video format to explain your thoughts,it will be helpful .
waiting for your replay.
thanks in advance.



Re: [Plugin] Smoothstep Animation Problem

Postby Grice » Wed Oct 09, 2013 5:30 am

I have been using this plugin for a while but have been running into a few problems, particularly on my PC (Mac to lesser extent). When generating frames, sometimes the frame generation can hang for a considerable amount of time. Standard frames will take a minute or two and then there will be a rogue frame that takes 20mins! Sometimes even as much as an hour! This ain't good. Seems to happen more at HD resolutions. It makes video generating times completely unpredictable.

Some sort of feature to universally number frames so that the animation can be stopped/started or "farmed" to other computers without messing up the frame sequence would also be fantastic.

I know this plugin was written a while ago but I am just hoping Whaat that you will relook at it again because it is a very useful script for my line of work...
