View Full Version : "playback by" with a random value?

05 May 2003, 11:14 AM
Hi! Im quite new to mel, and need to vary the playback-by-value a little bit with a random value by a script.
This should have the effect, that the animation should look a bit more jerky, not that smooth. So Playback shold not be frame 1,2,3,... but frame 0.8, 2.3, 2.9, 3.8,...
But I can`t find an attribute to vary this. Can anyone help me?

i think the best way is in pseudo code


made a array of length = number of frames of the scene

in this array
array[x]=array[x-1]+random(.5, 1.5)

select all the keyframe nodes in the scene

for every keyframe in every node

if frame=n



i hope that you understand my proc

is only made an array with the new pos of every keyframe and change it.
