We were already able to use these commands:
This did not give much control over the animation though, because we can basically only start or stop an animation.
But the following commands need parameters, which was not implemented; instead, mostly a value of just 0 was internally assigned, which totally broke the animation in some cases:
Now it's possible to use these commands as well.
Here's an AlcScript example of the syntax; we set double speed of the material animation in this example:
- Code: Select all
- type: responder
tag: MatForward # Responder Name or Tag
- type: animcmdmsg
- setspeed # SetSpeed Command
speed: 2.0 # SetSpeed Value
This way, you can play material animations at different speeds from now on, or define different speeds for for(e)wards and backwards animations.
Or you can hold different sections of the animation in the IPO curve, and play only part of it when needed, by using setbegin or setend for example.
Below you'll find a replacement file to be put in your PyPRP directory which does the job.
It's compatible to the current version 1.61 and it does not break your age.
Here's the list of value names (like "speed: 2.0" in the above example) belonging to the new commands:
(The commands gotopercent and playtopercentage are still unuseable; I haven't found out where to put belonging values in the PRP.)
