ASL Scripts / Materials Tutorials - finished
« on: March 21, 2010, 06:46:46 am »
Hey here are two tutorials I wrote on using ASL Scripting to write material scripts, and use textures. The first one is about using materials and the second is about using textures with materials. It is recommended you read them in order because the first one explains some things not in the second one. The first one is included in the March 2010 DotAn8 Magazine.

I was just wondering. Nothing seems to be happening progress wise with Anim8or. Maybe I just don't look in all the right places or i am misled on how long it takes to program something like this... Has steve just not had the time or has the new version not been posted yet? According to the preview page the last program was updated in 2008...

ASL Scripts / Editing

If anyone could help me out by taking some time out of their busy schedules to edit this quick ASL tutorial I whipped up. Slightly based on another one I saw but with a little more features. I'd also like to write another one on adding textures but I don't know how to do that yet...

ASL Scripts / Help

Hello again,

I have been looking closely at the plane plugin and I think I understand how it works. However if someone could please write up another simple plugin that has a Y value as well, such as a cube, it would probably help me a lot. If not could someone Explain the following code:

#plugin("object", "mesh", "plane");
#parameter("side", float, 10.0, 0.001, 99999, scale);
#button(17, 25, 2,
    0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x0fffffff, 0x00010001,
    0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x00010001,
    0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x00010001,
    0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x00010001,
    0x00010001, 0x00010001, 0x0fffffff, 0x00000000,
    0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000,
shape $plane; 
int $side,$i;
point3 $p;
$side = parameter("side");

What does this line and the one before it do? Would it change if the shape was a cube instead of a plane?

$p.x = -$side;
$p.y = 0;
$p.z = -$side;
What do the numbers mean and again would they change if the shape was a cube instead of a plane?

$p.x = $side;
$p.y = 0;
$p.z = -$side;

$p.x = $side;
$p.y = 0;
$p.z = $side;

$p.x = -$side;
$p.y = 0;
$p.z = $side;

Is it allowed to Modify other peoples scripts or is that against copyright/rude here. Say if i wanted to add Non-uniform scaling to a plugin that doesn't have non-uniform scaling. Could i do that or would I have to Creat a new tool
