Animation Framework?

Postby Sonico » Mon Feb 21, 2011 16:12

Hi, i am rookie using CEGUI and i have been working in a school project using Ogre. i give my first step in CEGUI to create the GUI for this project, but we need a way to easily animate the components properties of the GUI (something like the Animation Framework of Qt do). summarizing, i have a piece of code to do something like this that include a few effect using the new RenderEffect functionality in version 0.7.x, but i don't know if i am doing it in the better way possible. so if somebody have a better solution for my problem or maybe want to put a look in my code (to improve it or whatever you like), i will be happy of share it.

sorry my english and if i wrong of topic in the forum
give me a chance... i know that crazy is a little rude with beginners.. :)

You haven't posted any version info, I will assume 0.7.5

Take a look at http://www.cegui.org.uk/wiki/index.php/Animation_System

It's definitely not as powerful as Qt's animation framework but you can do some seriously nifty stuff with it.

i am using 0.7.0 and now i see this new addition made for you in 0.7.2.
reading the link that you post i see that use the same idea that we are using, the only different is maybe that we have a few prefabricated animations like fade in, fade out, shake and somethings like that to put directly to a windows AnimationManager->setAnimation(windowName, animationType), maybe this is an idea that you can add in new versions and the possibility to easily combine with Rendereffects, a set of Rendereffects will be great. don't you thing?
definitely i go to update to 0.7.2 to use this feature and throw away my code.

You can reuse animations right now already, define them in XML file and then instantiate it how many times you like. I prefer stuff to be generic so I don't like the idea of prefab animations although I agree it would make things easier for simple cases.
