ASL Scripts / Re: UVTools Preview

@daren_Anim8or apologies but the video download is no longer available. I did update the first post so that the Youtube embed works properly. You can view the video there.

Thanks for reporting. The hosted scripts now work. As for other website links, let me know which ones are broken and I'll remove them.

A plugin could probably be written to expedite this process, but there aren't any UI capabilities for the Anim8or scripting language, so it's going to be clunky no matter what. At best it would be like my UVTools plugin except geared more towards tilemapping.

Options->Debug->Use Original Arc Rotate

I do wish the original was on by default though.

Generally you want all joints that are moving to have a keyframe on the first frame. Try and make sure the first frame in the sequence has each joint keyed. Edit->Keys->Key All Bones is a quick fix.

Works as expected. Thanks!

Can we get a "?" token (currently returns an error token), and can I request an enhancement to Error Token such that scanner.strval is populated with the string equivalent of whatever it is that it comes across as an Error Token?

I don't really (read: never) deal with image processing via code. I expect for starters, something like:

new data types:
byte: unsigned 8-bit integer (0-255)
struct pixel {
 byte r, g, b, a;

image $img;
$img.New(width, height) or $img = Image(width, height) - Width/height can only be set during this stage. Construction creates blank and transparent pixels (zeroes across the rgba channels)

$img.width (read only)
$img.height (read only)
$img.pixels[] (get/set array values, but protected array size). Array length is width*height

Manipulation aside from $img.pixels[]:
$img.GetPixel(x, y) - user-friendly means of getting pixels by its x and y coordinates in the image.
$img.SetPixel(x, y, pixel) - user friendly means of setting the pixel

Maybe also tie this class into textures as well, as it expands capability to create procedural and possibly (scratches head) animated textures? For example, $tex.SetTexture($img) uses an Image object for its image information rather than a file.

Very cool, I always like to see ASL enhancements. Are there any plans on extending the image class to include the ability to create images from scratch, and functions for reading and manipulating pixels?

I typically visit this forum 1-2 times a day, but I haven't had much drive to create art the last couple of years. Occasionally I use Anim8or to make models for 3D printing or prototyping quickly here at work.

I can replicate the seams. This would be more @Steve than anything else as it has to do with UV border handling.

I can think of one fairly convoluted way to get past it:
  • In an image editor, scale each image down to 4094x4094 without cropping it, and center it on the image.
    • The canvas and entire image remains 4096x4096--basically you should have a 1px border around it
  • Load up the textures into your project, replacing the old ones
  • Slice and delete the 1px border using the knife or retopo tool, and then reassemble the map.
  • You may need to scale the image down further and increase the border pixel size

Are these the same mesh, and did you merge the points?

@Punth I'm consolidating my domains and hosting. The links should now work.
