Switching Animation On & Off in 3D Demo/Tut for 2.122

Open Source Seamless3d 2.122 is available for download at:

http://www.seamless3d.com/download

This version of Seamless completes my third priority for the year by adding functionality to the TouchSensor node. It is now possible to click an object in Seamless's 3d window to make it animate or stop.

This adds a lot of interactive capabilities for Seamless :P

To see how the Anim node can be controlled using a TouchSensor and a single line of script, see the new tutorial:

Switching Animation On & Off in 3D

This is perhaps the first practical tutorial aimed at the novice to show off Seamless's script friendly design.

I also have 2 short follow up tutorials that show how an "if" statement can be used with ease:

[url=http://www.seamless3d.com/tut/switch_anim3d/play_x_times.html]Play for a Specified Number of Times
Stopping the Anim Node After the Specified Time[/url]


Although no ROUTEs are used in these tutorials, the examples when exported will contain the necessary ROUTEs for VRML/X3D and have been tested to work for Bit-Management Contact.

2.122 has a number of bug fixes including fixes for the built in script compiler but remember the script compiler is at a very early stage in development so please treat it with kid gloves and don't expect anything that is not tested to work :)

To avoid deep frustration only attempt to write scripts that contain no more than 2 lines (or maybe even 3 lines but that will be pushing things) :wink:

Best of luck in writing seamless interactive scripts :P

Hi Lilly and Alain :P sorry about the trouble with the cache files Alain, I have now sent all of the cache files for the new demo to you.

This creature you have made Alain LOL what is it? it looks like it wants to sit down? or is it a creature designed to have it's bottom kicked? LOL
The seamless animation is good though :) thanks for sharing it with us :)
Its great to see you managed to figure out the start stop animation too without the demo but I guess the photo in the tutorial explains all you need to know what to do?
How do you find the way you can write interactive scripts without using ROUTEs? I feel beginners should not have to learn ROUTEs and then learn how to add a script node to do something just slightly more complex when scripts can be just as clean as ROUTEs the way seamless has it's scripts designed.

Your Lucrece looks very elegant Lilly I am sure she will sell like hot cakes especially now that she has start stop animation added :)
It makes me very happy to see you had so little trouble to understanding how to utilise the TouchSensor and seamless's script interface :) I will make the scripts more forgiving and friendlier with popup menus like many programs have today such as VRML pad but I am content to leave this like this for a while so that I can move onto some other priorities I have in my list.

I am sure you can join vertices together Lilly if you try to do no more than joining 2 vertices together to begin with. The parts must be converted to blue parts first but after see the heading:

Joining a Vertex to another Vertex (J)

from Immediate Commands

Better still see Matthieu's translation:

http://perso.orange.fr/Matthieu/Seamles ... s_fran.htm

Look for the heading: Joindre un sommet à un autre sommet (J)

This section is only 2 sentences so there is not much to understand :P

Joining vertices is easy already but I will make it even easier to do some time in the future and I will also soon show other ways you can make smooth joins. I have been thinking my duck would make a nice short demo for showing how to use BranchJoine nodes and edit vertices togther at the flat stage but first I want to add visual aids for the BranchJoin node to make them easier to understand.

I think though Lilly you should be content with the amount of progress you have made in the last few weeks, it is amazing to see all what you have done!!! your animated mouse looks great and now it is interactive :P

O yes and Matthieu has just translated the new switch tutorials:

Animation : marche / arrêt en 3D

et

Animation : marche X fois

so many thanks to Matthieu :P

It is strict policy to never punish any seamless users or their computers Alain :lol:

I would like to know though does the robot ever work for your computer? I mean do you ever see it move the mouse on your computer?

This bottle looks very well made Lilly, and cute :) even knowing it is for a baby vampire one can not help think, how cute :P
