Hey folks!

Just a reminder,

we're holding our Tuesday scriptor meeting again; same time, same place.

Everything you need to know can be found at this link. I am just reusing a previous thread announcement because it's easier... :)


I don't have anything planned yet so if you have a script project you'd like to discuss, or just questions you'd like to ask, feel free to bring 'em!

See you there!

Anybody have any thoughts or questions for tonight's meeting? Feel free to post them here!

I was doodling the other night while chatting with butterpaw. I remembered a tutorial that Roman had written in the 7.0 manual. The tutorial was about the airplane and propeller, and how the propeller would rotate as the plane moved. Pretty cool. So I just did something a little different.

I just expanded the WldMatrix output of a sphere and the Matrix input of a cube. I connected the tx of the sphere WldMatrix to the roll input of the cube's matrix.

Then when I moved the sphere the cube rotated. Pretty cool actually.

Though I was not using fancy objects it did give me some ideas for animations.

I think the RC car does something similar; when you move it the tires rotate.

For 'characters', say, robots, you can add 'robo-bling', or nurnies, etc. which do little mini-motions when the character moves, for example.

I'm afraid I'll probably miss this one. I wish I could make it but I think I've got too much going on tonight. :( I'll certainly try to show up if I can though.

Just a reminder about tonight everyone.

These meetings are always interesting and informative.

Sometimes we have an impromptu presentation, sometimes we have brainstorming sessions which lead to very cool results.

I have to work late but will get there when I can.

Awhile back Dele scripted a sliding beer can on a bar... that was pretty fun!

Well, hope to see you there!
