turntable - translation - rotation - ... ?
« on: February 10, 2012, 01:25:53 pm »
I am currently going trough the turtorial movies on the main site and watching these, I was wondering if there would be motions added to that list ... especialy watching the rotation, a nice red spring is in view a lot of the time ... what if you want to animate spring compression ?  I suggest adding "scale" to the list ;)

I am very excited though about the camera movement ... ease in & out is something I was missing soooooooooo hard in 3D Via Composer (which I was using so far).

I am currently testing "animation" with a time limited trail.  Already I am missing the "scale" animation option.  Is this on the list for anytime soon ?
50% of the animations I have to make are about sun-screens and there is no resonable alternative to making it go up/down than to use scale to stretch the plane that represents the tissue of the screen.

I'm thinking of another one ... OPACITY.

Can this be done in KS ?

In 3D Via composer (which we are soon to replace with animation in KS) I use it a lot.  However, I don't like it much there because to make a part appear/disappear, if you use "opacity", while the part is 50% visible, you can see its "interior structure" ... at best, making an object (like a screw or a bolt or ...) appear, should look like a 2D overlay image fading in ... if you get what I mean ...

Can this be done ?  Or will we have to render separate animations and then overlaps them in video software ?

Right now it can't be done since you can't animate materials. Nor do we have an opacity slider for materials. Again, it is on the list of things to do.
