[Update REQ 6926]: Animation question
> I would like to save a sequence of ppm snapshot files of a single off > object while it is rotating so that I can convert the sequence into a > movie. The only method I know of is to rotate the object slightly with > the mouse, stop the motion, and save each frame individually. > > Is there a faster more automatic method, such as a command script. If > so, do you have a sample command script that I could modify? Two options: 1. If the motion is axis-aligned, it's pretty easy to use the rotate and snapshot commands together: (snapshot targetcam /tmp/foo%03d.rgb) (transform world world world rotate .1 0 0) (snapshot targetcam /tmp/foo%03d.rgb) (transform world world world rotate .1 0 0) and so on. The snapshot commanad auto-increments the filename. 2. But for a more complex motion than the simple rotation around the x axis that I have above, consider using StageManager, which was designed to help people easily make animations from Geomview. Download it from http://www.geom.umn.edu/software/StageTools/ Hope this helps, Tamara
