View Full Version : Duncan's Paper Planes

04 April 2008, 04:36 PM
I have a question about a file on Duncan's corner. The one with the paper planes.

You can download the file here:

Since Duncan seems very busy thes days, I will ask the question here.

In this file there are some sliders integrated in the viewport. I would like to keyframe the values of those sliders. Is it possible? I know it seems simple but I can't find any expression nor parameters nor even objects related to those sliders...

Am I missing something or what?

No I can't. I can't even select the slider...

OK I got it thankful to you!

By looking in the expression editor and by checking "Select Filter by script node name" I could find that the slider is controlling an attribute called "dartFlapR.rz" so I just had to create a locator to animate those attribute:


et voila!
