Smile Help Needed with Impact Plus 4.0

I have a little query

Is it possible in this version of Impact Plus to lock a camera to a moving object so that one can see part of the grid and the whole of the object as it moves around an unseen object in the animation?

Thanking you all in advance.



I have upgraded to ImpactPlus 5.1 now.

I don't know that you'll get many answers on this one. ImpactPlus5 was the last version of this noble program, and that release was probably two years ago. Maybe three. I doubt that many people remember how the last version worked, let alone a version earlier than that. Good luck, though.

The attached Animated GIF was created in Impact Plus 5.0, but hopefully the basics still apply.

<Attachment removed 22/2/13>

There was an awful lot of tweaking, but the basics were:

1) Create the sun as a sphere.
2) Create a point light source with the same size and position as the sun.
3) Create an Elliptical Path around the sun.
4) Create the planet.
5) Attach the planet to the elliptical path.
6) (A lot of fine tuning at this point using rotation and path keyframes in the unminimaised Animation View to create a repeating 20 frame rotation of the planet while moving from 0% to 100% of the path in 100 frames - basically a five day year).
7) Create a copy of the elliptical path and change the size to make a much smaller circular path.
8) Attach the circular path to the elliptical path (be prepared to undo this stage - the order in which you select the paths affects which path gets attached to which) ideally the elliptical path will remain unchanged by this step.
9) Using the Animation View, add and fine tune Path Keyframes so that the circular path progresses around the ellipse at the same position/rate as the planet.
10) Attach the Mobile Camera to the circular path.
11) Fine tune the Y Angle of the Mobile Camera and the X and Y dimensions of the circular orbit to your liking.

Very impressive, I would like to see a higher resolution version of that file.

Thank you for posting.

I started at 640 by 400, then 320 by 200, and could only get the zipped version below the upload cap at 160 by 100.

Even the ipp file is 804k in size (used particle effects to give the photosphere some texture). Unfortunately I do not have access to a size-unlimited web site where I could post a larger version.

Yes, you do - anyone can have a YouSendIt account for free! Just upload it by sending the E-mail to yourself, then post the link you receive to the upload here. It's not unlimited, but the limit is big, nonetheless!!!

Yes - but the limit is for the files you've uploaded, not for cumulative downloads, and your IP5 file is only around 800KB, anyway, I think!!! The ONLY limit on downloading is the time - we have seven days to grab the files.

Just downloaded the .gif to have a look - impressive!

Default good generic pills

Why I must buy expensive ****** 40mg while I can get generics on line with delivery to my place and for considerably lower price. I am ready to accept the situation that customer support sometimes can be dull when I want to trace my order. clomid tabs
