Don't worry about my sig, I can live without it and you have better things to spend time on. I do appreciate that you want to make me a sig, I really do <3

That's a nice and smooth animation <3 :salute

It will be some simple but meaningful words I think :mrgreen:

Yes it was, but why didn't it do the second part? I used the same code.

Maybe it's because you didn't set the Length of the video to match? What was the code you use?

I think you're right. I forget the video length :lol:

This one.

Code: Select all

Roll(360,1,10);
Yaw(360,11,29);

Right, the Yaw ends at 29, so make your video length 30 to give it an extra second after it stops before the video end.

Yep, I did that and it came out rather well. But I wanted to add something special, not sure what. Any suggestions?

You could add an asset, the Asteroid rock, have a few hundred of them in a small box ahead of the ship, then set the script for it to rx := 1; and they'll all go in all direction as if the ship had fired on the stack. I don't know! :mrgreen:

The asset contains an Asteroid rock, really nice too.

Yes I've played around with that and most likely I'll add that to a 'whole' project I have in mind. I need to get back to my airfield animation and finish it, to where the 302 takes off and disappears into the atmosphere.

Vid 2 will be when it enters space, encounters some asteroids and finally I'll show it off when the spin video :mrgreen:

I can't wait to see that. Do you think your laptop can handle it?

Slowly, but yes. What I need help with is where do we go from the end of the older coding? How do we finish it and do we need to change it to the new format?

Code: Select all

Units := Meters;

BlinkLight('emitter_blue_tailight', 2, 0, 999);
BlinkLight('emitter_stb_nav',       3, 0, 999);
BlinkLight('emitter_port_nav',      3, 0, 999);
BlinkLight('emitter_nav_light',     1, 0, 999);

Accelerate(py, 40, 2, 27);

DistDecelerate(py, 25, 27);

Yaw(-90, 30, 40);

Accelerate(py, 30, 42, 43);

if (sec >= 40) and (sec <= 42) then 
  CamRotX := -12/(2*fps);

if (sec >= 42) and (sec <= 52) then 
  CamPosY := py / 1.3;

Pitch(35, 46, 49);

if (sec >= 46) and (sec <= 49) then 
  CamRotX := -10/(3*fps);

If that code works, then there is no need to change the format. All we need to know is what you need it to do at the end.

From where it stops after turning the corner, it rests for say 3-4 seconds, then slowly starts to roll forward, building speed for about 250m, before a 20-25 degree lift off, then start to arc to almost vertical and disappear off screen (at which point in the sound track I'll add a sonic boom!) :mrgreen:

But that's what the script do already, third line from last...

The one I posted earlier today in this thread.

Units := Meters;

BlinkLight('emitter_blue_tailight', 2, 0, 999);
BlinkLight('emitter_stb_nav', 3, 0, 999);
BlinkLight('emitter_port_nav', 3, 0, 999);
BlinkLight('emitter_nav_light', 1, 0, 999);

Accelerate(py, 40, 2, 27);

DistDecelerate(py, 25, 27);

Yaw(-90, 30, 40);

Accelerate(py, 30, 42, 43);

if (sec >= 40) and (sec <= 42) then
CamRotX := -12/(2*fps);

if (sec >= 42) and (sec <= 52) then
CamPosY := py / 1.3;

Pitch(35, 46, 49);

if (sec >= 46) and (sec <= 49) then
CamRotX := -10/(3*fps);

It was a while back so to make sure, use the one I just sent you, I just compiled it and tested the script and it all works.

working but the 302 is going backwards, which figure do I change to correct that? Y, Z or something?

no, just make it negative, at the end of the script, add py := -py; and that will reverse the direction.
