Has anyone made an exporter for Second Life's Sculpt Maps? Wondering also if Steven knows about Sculpt Mapping.

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Just ideas..
« on: January 28, 2009, 01:09:28 am »
Lately Ive been playing around with something called Incredibots found of course at Incredibots.com. It allows you to construct and make movies of little machines you create, with interesting controllers..This done all in 2d. I wonder if steve could incorporate something like this physics engine into anim8or , or at least it's controlers for animation.

ASL Scripts / independant axis?
« on: November 13, 2008, 06:21:55 am »
Gained a new fustration  >:(

Objects seem to have an axis independant of the "Object axis" or "viewport axis"
Turning the model or it's axis appears to do squat when moving a point with a point3 declaration. Moving the axis also doesn't do anything. maybe Im missing something?
Code: [Select]
/*************************************************/
/*** Script in progress made to flatten points ***/
/*** Created by: VBSmiles                              ***/
/*************************************************/
/*** declaration ***/
#command("object"); /*1*//* To start as menu item ? */
point3 $c_point, $ModLoc;    /*2*//* current point */
float $dist;    /*6*//* Distance between points and ... */
shape $model;
int $test, $i, $NP;
file $file;
string $Output;

/*** Initialization ***/
$model = project.curObject.LookupShape("mesh01");
$ModLoc = $model.loc;
/*** Get the number of points in model ***/
if ($model != NULL)
{
$model.Open();

$NP = $model.GetNumPoints();

for $i = 0 to $NP do
 {
   /* Get the selected point */
   $test = $model.GetPointSelected($i);
   
   /*** if selected then store it's values ***/
   if ($test == 1)
      {
      $c_point = $model.GetPoint ($i);

      $c_point.y =  $ModLoc.y;
      /*** move the point ***/
      $model.SetPoint ($i, $c_point);

      }
   }
$model.Close();
refresh();
   $file.open("$console", "w");
  $Output = PrintToString("Parent Location:%e", $ModLoc.y);
   $file.print("\n" +$Output+ "\n");
$file.close;
} else
{
  $file.open("$console", "w");
   $file.print("\n\n where the hell is the model? \n\n");
$file.close;
}

In my code, I used the Parent location to play around with it a little. but even this seems effected by this "invisible axis"

ASL Scripts / Yeaaah..
« on: November 09, 2008, 04:43:45 am »
Appearently this ASL stuff is rigged. Ok, maybe not. I just seem to be having a little problem with soaking in it as a programmer.


#command("object"); /*1*//* To start as menu item ? */
point3 $C_point;     /*2*//* current point */
float $dist;    /*6*//* Distance between points and ... */
 /*7*/   $model = project.curObject;



/* Get the marked point */
for $i = 0 to GetNumPoints($model)
{

 int $test = GetPointMarked($i);
if ($test = 1){
SetPoint ($i, $c_point.x, 0);
}
}

so uh.... what went wrong?

Finished Works and Works in Progress / short and sweet
« on: November 04, 2008, 07:08:40 am »
just another wierd project ( kinda small though  ::) )
the image below I grabbed from the vid ( lost the project LOL )

The first image uses no shadows.

Its a great photo on it's own, BUT...

The second image used shadows.... note that the light source sits in the lamp. A big oops.

I took off the 'light' here to show what should be ( shadows with more emphisis than intended to bring focus to them )

If you ever decide to introduce self illuminating objects, you'll probably want to deal with this issue.

Oh,  I know how tough it would be to introduce shadows in the raytracer as it was in scanline. So don't blame ya if you never get it done  :-*

I didn't even realize the tiny resize bar existed until an hour ago >:(
Anyway I thought it would be better like in this photograph.

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / shadows killed my dielectric
« on: October 05, 2008, 02:07:09 am »
In the first photo, everything went pretty smoothly and as expected. I rendered without shadows mainly to speed up render time ( kind of a pre-veiw for material, lighting, ect. )

In the second photo it didn't work out as nicely. I didn't have the object ( water ) casting or recieving shadows, but my blue water now looks like oil...

???                                    ???                                   ???

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Wow. Major render bug...
« on: September 29, 2008, 03:14:20 am »
Seems that there is a major crash rendering in stereo. attempted to do it 2 times with same results. I haven't tried a simpler project to deturmine exact cause. but thought you would like to know about it anyway Steven

Update. Did a very simple project with same results. Maybe have to do with the new movable renders?
