FindCorners Plugin

Credits: wirmachenbunt / gnox / u7angel


somehow you have a linear path from somewhere, consisting of just too much coordinates ? you want to find the corners of the path ?

then this plugin is for you

  • finds corners in a two-dimensional path
  • helps to reduce spreadcounts of paths
  • set of parametes : KernelSize, Standard Deviation, Threshold
  • Debug Output can show angle detection, smoothed angle etc.
  • additional relative position allows to move object on path
  • released as dynamic plugin, feel free to modify and contribute
  • download

well maybe its of use for someone, its kind of special. we used it to optimize the result from A* path finding algorithm. i will publish this one, in a few days...just cleaning up.

great! thank you!

very good _ thank you. i wonder if you already cleaned up your path finding patch...
i would have look at this. (even if its chaotic)

and +1 for A* was just looking at wikipedia entry- sounds neat

u7angel 26/08/2011 - 18:04

i didnt put any work into A* because if i'm not mistaken, tonfilm has the mother of network/path search plugins in the pipeline...with all algorithms you want to mess with

Exactly what I was looking for - thanks a pantload!

Awesome work, just patched something like this :)

Is it possible to ad a threshold pin, so it skips the very small corners? And perhaps some an extra output that say what angle is coming out at of that corner, so I can put something there pointing in the right direction :)

This is nice!!

u7angel 19/09/2012 - 23:17

threshold is built in. check inspektor for settings. some angles are coming out the debug pin. the plugin is coming as a dynamic node, so you are welcome to add some stuff yourself.
