Thank you again for all those explanations that makes me discover unknown options of Hype. I will experiment next week.
*Nice presentation (your link just above)"
Thank you. This draft is a kind of proof of concept.
"What I saw was a video output with a basic animation routine.
No interactivity because this is a draft.
- the motion of each object (light beam in my case) is not linear but implies some trigonometric functions and I got the impression that doing it by hand would be too difficult. I understand that I have to discover “motion paths”.
- in case of deployment in several sizes, the scripted animation will auto-adjust itself to the available space. My tests with Hype’s rescalling were often deceptive but I may have missed something.
- my current draft is not interactive but my goal is to give user the control of motions in both the top-left and bottom pane (just a dream !).
" Or - are You trying to programmatically create these animations for your own particular reasons?"
I did that because I failed to synchronise the motions of the various beams (within the bottom pane) and still fail to synchronise motions of the top-left and bottom panes.
A drawback of my workaround is that I cannot implement a Pause button, or can I ? I know how to pause the Hype timeline but the timeline of the widget seems to Iive its own life.
"These animations could certainly be done manually using Hype’s built-in animation capabilities - specifically using “motion paths” - which are by default synchronized with a timeline."
This is very interesting. I will have a look at it next week when my grandchildren will be at school!
Many thanks for your advises and your understanding.
