Sorry about digging up this old post, but I wanted to ask you something about the script.
There are a way to make it “permanent”?
I mean, everytime I need to animate a material I load the script, adjust the options and everything goes good.
But I need to do it everytime I open the scene!
I work on animations and often I use the same “stage” to save up some time… If the mat’s animations is saved along the others it will be very good!
oh i didn’t know about that one
i’ll test it right now, in DS 4.6
yesterday/today i posted an update for mcjJet it also uses material animation
if you didn’t see it,——> http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/21263/P45/#673336
since i needed to give a friend a particle effect built with mcjJet
i wrote but did not publish a tool to save animated materials as a daz script
so, very soon ( like today ) i may post that tool in this forum
maybe i’ll make a separate version for matAnim’s animations
fig 1 - animating the texture tiling vertical offset between 0 and 1 over 12 frames, linear interpolation—the vertical texture tiling size is 1/12 or 0.86666667
fig 2 - the film strip built using virtualDub and imageMagic
virtualdub to extract the 12 images in the original nyan cat gif
and this batch file to assemble a film strip
c:\imagemagick\montage Nyan*.jpg -geometry 200x200+0+0 -tile 1x12 nyanstrip.jpg
oh, indeed the animation is lost on exit !
i’m almost certain this didn’t happen for Daz Studio 1, 2, 3
