Already autumn in the northern hemisphere? That is certainly true :-)

Added two movies for the first time in about 1.5 years. Animation of inverse kinematics (IK) is very tricky and hard to get a stable solution for each trueSpace version (tS4 - tS6). Material and shading is also difficult to understand the mechanism because tSxAPIxx.doc does not explain everything. I found a solution that uses "internal name" of shaders just within recent weeks.

Added two short movies. The detailed features of WIDGET, NURBS control points, Scene Editor (Keyframe Editor, KFE) are also undocumented in tsxAPIxx.doc, and cut-and-try was needed to understand how to manipulate them using tsxAPI functions.


Widget sample emulation (2021)
This python script emulates a good old SDK sample C++ code "WdgSample.cpp" including callback functions.

Water ripple (2021)
This python script creates a NURBS cylinder like a spider web (i.e. with very small top and very short height) , deforms it as circular wave, makes an animation of that, clones it to several location, and shifts time frame of them.
