Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding animation types, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this movie, we are going to look at the Animation Type parameter, as well as…many other of these settings, in the Animation Engine.…And, we have, again, a very non- practical, non-real-world example.…We just have two 3D grids of cubes.…But, this is what's going to help us understand really what's going on here,…before we get into more practical examples later on in the chapter.…So, again, I just have these two walls of 3D grid of cubes, and Group 1 is in the…front, Group 2 is in the back.…So, let's enable the Animation Engine, and we will just get these first cubes.…
And let's increase the Animation parameter.…What that's doing, by default, is using the directional animation type.…This is making the particles disappear, or, rather, transition on from the left…side to the right side of Group 1, and then also reappear or morph into Group…2, from left to right.…So, if we, let's say, for example, take this half way--and I will go and select…the Unified Camera tool and move this around-- you can see we have a nice, little staircase here.…
