I want write a script that can simplify an animation along a path. The concept is as follows:
Before script work:
Create "line01" as the path to constrain a dummy.
Then create "dummy01" and constrain it to line01.
Then create "line02" directly above line01 (These two will be aligned vertically from one another in the y-direction).
What I want the script to do:
Measure distance (d) from "dummy01" to "line02".
Then insert "d" into the equation "V = (sqrt(64.3*d))/2" to solve for "V".
I want "V" to then be inserted into the equation "(V*(1/6))/(line01 length)".
This should return a value of percentage along the spline that dummy01 needs to move forward.
This value needs to somehow be added on to whatever percentage dummy01 is already along line01.
Once they dummy has been moved, the script should place a key 5 frames from current frame. I want this whole process to repeat until I reach the end of line01.
This should represent some type of dynamics for the dummy along the spline. I used to manually key this process, and the time has come to automate it.
Thank you in advance for your help! Hopefully, as I progress with my training I will be able to give back to the community.
