plugin animation tween
Credits: Michael Antykov (http://videofabrika.com) for sponsoring research


Pack of nodes for fast animation patching:

  • Animator

Base logic for every tween with delay, repeat, seek, pause, etc. Fully spreadable and sync with internal timer. Replaces many animation nodes in one. Inspired by Zeh Fernando (zeh ) tweener-(value).

  • Ease

One node with easing presets (include google's swift http://www.google.com/design/spec/animation/authentic-motion.html), one for custom easing function.

  • Lerp

Makes interpolation between value/spline/color/transform.



  • Fix start & repeat pins banging only when delay finished

ello gumlastik,

good stuff!

i noticed one little hickup aka jump, checkout your lerp help patch: when the segment passes a keyframe.

Also found a small bug in a slightly modified Animator helppatch:

Ahh, cool. I always wanted to pimp the waveshaper-(value) to contain the penner equations as well. Maybe vvvv.core should merge this.

very nice!

Indeed very nice!

Kudos for finally introducing a basic Lerp (Value) node. Don't know why noone else ever thought of simplifing a map this way, when it's safe to assume input is0..1.

On the same drift it would be awesome to further nodalize the Animator. The repeat feature could be a module that stops reporting change after when the first repetition kicks in. Pingpong is also a perfect candidate for being a module, inverting the signal every even repetition.
Of what's left, it's very much like the good old LFO (Animation). Seek calls itself Reset; funnily, Seek Time is named Period, but imo it is more the offset time. Just silly name-calling ;)

Anyhow, the Ease plugins are a charm. They show great insight into stated-triggered motion on your part. It is a different paradigm then what vvvv is geared for, but it's always good to have proper and fast penner in our favorite toolkit, when eventually state becomes easy data.

That said, please consider pullrequesting vvvv-sdk. Social Git can be a pain sometimes, but it would help a lot of people if your Lerps and Eases would join the pack, or even the VVVV.Utils.

mediadog: @tonfilm Thanks! Need to kill a specific vvvv instance, so that enables "taskkill /FI "WINDOWTITLE eq (title)"
