I am learning to use Animator. For some reason my original position changed and now it not correspond to my model. Are there a way to reset or change the original position of my clip?

Probably not...

There is a Positioner facility in Animator (4th icon), allowing you save and restore the position of objects. It is a good idea to save the position of objects before you start building animations.

Hello Fredo, thanks for the extension it's amazing and simple to use.
I'm having difficulty using the appearance function. for some reason, it doesn't work as it should.
I've messed with it in this project and suddenly as working the function refused to work with disappearing components.i've made a short video to explain.
thanks

Your video cannot be accessed. Maybe it is private.

I am not sure I understand the problems from the video.

Maybe posting the model would help so that I can have a look.

The problem is that the option of using the disappear option does not react to some Groups. and when it workes it doesn't recognize the XYZ boundaries for disappearing progressively.
here's a link to the file and to the animator file

update:
I've created a new file for trying the disappear apparition option and it worked perfectly.
somehow it's my file that is not corresponding with the plugin. I tried to delete all layers and purge the file but it didn't help.

here is another video to show that. (in this one the animator doesn't even react)


thanks,
itay

Let's start with this - Your Animator product is awesome.....

I do have a question - can the user create their own custome "easing" timeline? I have a need for a custom timeline for a project i am working on. Have you thought about an "easing" timeline that doesn't go from 0-to-1 but from 0 to some other value. I am thinking of something like a two cycle sinewave or a path that starts at zero and damps out at the end to .5 Think of the things you could move around with that - the possibilities are almost endless. You can do almost anything with the tools you have provided but a custom easing would allow MANY things to be done in one step that now take many steps.

Thanks for the positive appreciation.

This is in my plan, and more generally, to provide a framework to vary all variables through time. I mainly need to build a GUI for that.

Are you interested in custom easing for movement or for cameras?

Hi Guys, Can you guide me to create the animation using section plane along with the path in different SketchUp styles [i.e x-ray, hidden line, wireframe, etc]. Actually, I want to create an animation of water flow through the pipe in sketchup[similar to blender].
