Objects that can change with each frame of fly-through?

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi Forum,

I'm experienced with creating fly-throughs in ArchiCAD but whenever I create a fly-through, I've always wandered if I will ever check that 'Rebuild Model for Each Frame' box

Can you help me which objects can change per frame of a fly-through and where abouts I would change the settings for these.

Many thanks!

Sui.

Some objects are scripted to be animated in which case you would use this option. Also Bitmap trees / people objects that need to always face the camera will require this too.

Examples:
Cadimage Door and Window Builder doors (can open as the camera approaches)
Objectstop's Archipuppet (and others)
Various cars are also scripted to move, wheels rotate etc.

cheers for the reply s2art.

Are there any free objects? I'm assuming they dont have any in the default archCAD library. Its just that my students (and mysef!) would never be able to afford professional objects!

Thanks again.

Many of those producing Add-ons and libraries for AC offer free versions for students. Check out their website for Objective, cadimage etc.

This is how simple the GDL code would look like. Each new frame (GLOB_FRAME_NR) the object will move the distance of DistanceOfOneStep further in direction X. Paste this at the top of any 3D script.
ADDX GLOB_FRAME_NR*DistanceOfOneStep

Thanks Master Script

Can I move ArchiCAD's default objects by just adding
ADDX GLOB_FRAME_NR*DistanceOfOneStep
?

I've tried it but I'm not sure if it's possible.

*Plus, I've been searching for free animated objects to use in Artlantis and its very limited out there! But great thanks for everyone pointing me in the right directions.

Thanks again.

Why would you need a moving chair? Are you animating a bar brawl?

In case you are interested I have upload this object. Just type in exactly the name of the object you want to move (for instance armchair 01 12).
If you want to move seperate pieces within an object you must learn to GDL.

Master Script, i have downloaded your animation object, which works great, thank you! but i need the object to only move during certain frame of my fly-thru. How do i control when the object moves? thanks

Edit the 3D script:



Start_frame=10

IF GLOB_FRAME_NR> Start_frame THEN

ADDX (GLOB_FRAME_NR-Start_frame)*DimensionX
ADDY (GLOB_FRAME_NR-Start_frame)*DimensionY
ADDZ (GLOB_FRAME_NR-Start_frame)*DimensionZ)


CALL NameObject PARAMETERS ALL

ENDIF

Have you tried this one? TheAnT

thanks, i just downloaded TheAnT, i'll check it out. I figured this formula out last night and added it to my sliding door, to make it move and stop @ 76":

IF GLOB_FRAME_NR>=5 AND GLOB_FRAME_NR<=20 THEN
ADDX GLOB_FRAME_NR*4"
ENDIF
IF GLOB_FRAME_NR>=21 THEN
ADDX 76"
ENDIF


works great. thanks for the help
