[Plugin] Animatex v1.0.6

Postby renderiza » Tue May 07, 2013 4:08 am

Author:: Renderiza 
Plugin Name:: Animatex
Version:: 1.0.6
Date:: 5/24/2013
Cost:: Free




Animatex

Animatex allows you to animate multiple textured faces by assigning them to any of the three Animatex layers which have their own x,y,z parameters to set speed. You can also set the FPS (frames per second) of the animation but make sure to use a speed that your machine can handle.

To solve the problem of the plugin not working properly while transitioning camera though your scenes a "Fix" check box is provided to address that specific issue.

Seems very cool indeed! :enlight:

Does the animated textures are living scenes to scenes ?
say I have 3 scenes : does an animated texture will work on each scene without new regulates ?

PS does the plug works on any version of SU ? (6,7,8)

Just read questions again and this are the answers...
Does the animated textures are living scenes to scenes ? Yes
does an animated texture will work on each scene without new regulates ? Yes

I thought you were asking about animating cameras using scene transitions while having animated textures running...my bad but below is the answer to that just in case. :oops:

Short answer - Not at the moment since page transition will lag if the web-dialog is frames per second is set too high.

Long answer - If you access 'rnd_animatex.html' you will notice a line that says this "var delay = 1000/15 ;" which indicates the 'frames per second' that the web-dialog will update to refresh its values, in this case 15 frames a second.

Since the SketchUp view-port can't be unfocused while scene/page is being transitioned its creating a problem with the web-dialog since every 15 frames per second the focus is going back and forward between dialog & view-port.

The higher the FPS the worst but if you use 5fps for example the the scene transition speed will be fine. In the future having the user set the frames per second will be a very good idea but I will still be searching for a better way to go around this issue.

For the plugin being compatible with other versions I am not sure. :oops:

Anyways thanks everyone for reply! :thumb:

Not at the moment but maybe in the future something like that can be implemented.

Here are some plugins that can play a sequence of images much like a gif;

Again thanks everyone for the questions & comments! :thumb:

Animatex v1.0.2 Released!

Now with v1.0.2 you can animate multiple faces on each of the three separate layers that can control different x,y,z speeds.

Will make quick video soon explaining the new features so expect that soon.

Renderiza,

First off this is a very nice plugin. Question: Will it work with round objects like pipes? I would like to simulate water flowing through a pipe. Also, can I make the water flow to the left instead of the right? Probably a dumb question but I can't change the direction.

Thank You,

Paul


Edit: Figured out the second question. Make it a negative number :D

raineysky :: Will it work with round objects like pipes?

Hi,

The plugin will animate any face with a texture that is inside or outside of a group but it can't be nested in a group withing another group and also it is not working with face inside Component Instances at the moment. :?

With this in mind you can have animated textures on round objects but since the texture x,y,z coordinate are set by face and not globally like for example projected faces, it will mess the uvs coordinates if you used projected texture if that make any sense.

Now you pointed out that you are using water so it may still look decent...I might include an example of this on my upcoming video. :thumb:

raineysky :: Also, can I make the water flow to the left instead of the right?

You can use negative sign to specify x,y,z to move in opposite direction. For example;

x= -1 , y= -6 , z= -10

Hope this helped...Cheers!

I corrected the message since 2nd time I read it wasn't what I wanted to mean so here is another try on that sentence...

The plugin will animate any face with a texture that is inside or outside of a group but it can't be nested in a group withing another group and also it is not working with face inside Component Instances at the moment.

When I was using Animatex inside SketchUp there was no lag but I guess 'ActivePresenter' screen capturing software produced some lag in the video output. If you want to screen capture without lag output then I recommend using 'Fraps'.

Animatex v1.0.5 Released!

Hi, this is a small update for Animatex.

Now Animatex is an extension that you can see under Window > Preferences > Extensions. With a quick click, you can learn some info about plugin and can even turn it on and off.

Also this update attempts to fix some buttons that were not showing on some web-dialogs and also removed some that were not needed.

Hi,

I used Active Presenter which is free.

http://atomisystems.com/activepresenter/free-edition/


I also use Fraps which only captures viewport and ignores things like cursor, toolbars and so on. This screen capturing software reduce lag and preserve frame rate really well but its not free.

Cheers!
