Perseverance rover, 2nd animation

Post by Support »

Like the previous animation of the Perseverance Rover, this one includes wheel movement using the new script function...

Code: Select all

Spin(Axis, Distance);
This function automatically computes the circumference and angle of rotation over the given distance.

You're cheating, you didn't render that, you copied it from NASA's YouTube channel. This is a NASA information video for the Perseverance. :lol:
OMG, that's brilliant. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Thank you @GateGirl86 and @Okwa

It wasn't hard to make, just some yaw and pitch commands for the arm and a spin command for the wheels, that is all.

All I did in Sketchup is make the moving parts components and set their axis.

@Support I'm honestly not that impressed with the video. :D Don't get me wrong, the video is awesome! <3 But I just assumed that one day you would programme something like that. :D I have to correct myself. Your light and texture settings make me envious. :mrgreen:
But ,what makes me really envious is that you are so good as a model maker in Sketchup too. I mean, as far as I can tell, your model is perfect down to the smallest detail. Just as if it was created by a NASA employee for a PR video. :mrgreen:

Oh wow, thank you so so much! I'm absolutely blown away by your kind words! :o I never expected such a reaction to my project. It means a lot to me that you think my model could pass for NASA-level work in a PR video, it leaves me speechless! Thanks again for your amazing support, encouragement and friendship <3 I'll cherish this feeling of astonishment while I continue honing my 3D skills! :D

My apologies. I thought I had commented on this. I see it was when I was ill, so I missed it.

Absolutely stunning work. NASA and Hollywood level of excellence.

@BKilburn Can't sleep :lol: so I played with your model and came up with this script. But first, you have to change the ship's axis, the forward direction (green, Y) should be set but you have the forward direction is (red, X). Once you do that, the Pitch, Yaw and Roll will work as they should... set the video length to at least 13 sec.

Code: Select all

Look;
Accelerate(py, 500, 0, 1);
Pitch(253, 3, 9);
Roll(80, 3, 5);
Roll(-80, 7, 8.7);
