i did some cleaning on my google site, the props and figures are now all quickly and visually accessible on one page

note that if you use the tiny blue down-arrow to download the zip files, you dont need to do odd things like log-in a google account

and that’s how to download the zip file in one shot anyway

happy summer @ all smile

Ok, that’s it. You’re getting your own folder in my saved zips. LOL
I’ve been to your site a lot before, but this is the first time I’m seeing those flexithings. /downloads

mcjSuperLathe underwent a big shuffling, it’s still too big and has quirks, but it is nearing i can hear it from afar it says ‘soooooooon’ and the echo goes ‘oh yeah sure’

i thought about restarting the tease thread but mnah smile

You rule. smile

Will your textanim or matanim scripts work on gel lights, or would they need to be tweaked for that? (I know I should just try it, but a) I’m at work and b) I don’t work with animations much, so it might take me a while to figure out if it doesn’t work or if it’s just that I don’t know what I’m doing!)

Example: moving a gel image of the shadows cast by tree leaves back and forth to simulate wind…. even just shifting H or V offset would probably be enough to get a nice effect.

Example: moving a gel image of the shadows cast by tree leaves back and forth to simulate wind…. even just shifting H or V offset would probably be enough to get a nice effect.

with texanim you convert your video clip into a series of images, using programs like wirtualdub or ffmpeg or most video editing software

then in a text file, you specify the name of the object, the surface, the surface channel that will have those images applied to it

ex: plane1 default opacity

then you use the script texanim and it renders the animation frame by frame, between renders it switches the image applied to plane1/default/opacity

so if your gel has a surface/material, texanim should be able to anmimate it

same goes for matanim, as long as there’s a node/material involced it can be animated . Some shaders dont have Tiling/UV channel so you cant animate them this way

—-

i dont know but i suppose some gobo/gel systems dont have a surface/material, instead the image is specified in the parameters tab .. so texanim and matanim wouldbt work

i know that if you apply a negative image to the opacity channel of a primitive/plane and use a light that has enabled shadows, you do get a gobo/gel if you render in software/3delight mode

Ah—that’s a good tip. Using a transparent plane to make the animated light would work.

Would it be feasible to make a similar tool that would let one adjust parameters of a light across a timeline? Or a camera? Many gel lights have H/V offset parameters that could be adjusted this way for nice effects. There are some custom cameras that also have interesting parameters that could be used this way.

most if not all of the parameters of a node ( including cameras and props ) can be “told” to be animatable or non-animatable
if we were in the Daz Studio 3 days i could write that script in 5 minutes but Daz Studio 4 doesn’t let us select a parameter with our mouse

eventually i’ll probably modify MatAnim and it will be able to change the animatability both surfaces and nodes parameters

i don’t have them, but the animation plugins in the Daz Store may be able to do that

although not applicable to Node Parameters like UV Offsets,
i wrote a script to turn on/off the animatability of the position and rotations of a camera
https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts/unanimate-and-reanimate

so the short answer is ... eventually smile

Don’t see a separate thread for the script, so here it goes…  smile

For mcjBBOrient, do the billboards follow the camera even if it goes “up” in the air?  So for example, if you have those trees in your example, is there a way to keep them from “tilting” if the camera goes up, but still face the camera direction?  Tilting trees is not a good thing wink  I was trying to use the Point At, and lock rotations, so I asked about that in Nuts n Bolts, but I saw this script, and thought maybe it did what I was looking for already?
