Dynamic Components, Interaction and Animation Output

Dynamic Components, Interaction and Animation Output

Postby Tim Danaher » Sun Nov 23, 2008 11:48 am

DCs can be set to have animated behaviours, but these need to be triggered using the 'Interact' tool, i.e, in real time.

Does anybody know if these animated behaviours can be built into a rendered-out animation? Doors opening as you walk through them, for instance?

Id guess it would be possible, although it would be up to the people who write the exporters to incorporate it.

Perhaps if their was some way of triggering the animation with a scene, so you click the scene and then the DC does the animation, im just guessing with that one, really.

No, it can't be done -- it's not supported yet. I have it from the horse's mouth.

I added support for animation and interaction of Dynamic Components in LightUp. There is a short vid here

[I don't know what YouTube has done to the quality / framerate of the video, but you get the gist]

It supports click on DC and also proximity triggering them so you can have doors opening as you walking around.

I also added some extra optional syntax to the onClick behaviour. You can write:

animateslow("rotx", 0,45,90),cycle

And it will animate from 0 to 45 to 90 degrees and back to 0 when you trigger.

Or you can write:

animateslow("rotx", 0,45,90),cycle,pause

and get the same with a pause between each state.

Or you can write:

animateslow("z", 0,200,400),forever

to loop the animation once its triggered.
