16.69.4 - Spinning Star Example


Here is how the above transition is coded:

; Star transition ; initxy 0.5 0.5 repeats 1 1 offsets 0.0 0.0 xscales 0 3.5 yscales 0 3 rotate 0 360 line -0.55 -0.175 -0.1 -0.2 line -0.1 -0.2 0.05 -0.6 line 0.05 -0.6 0.15 -0.2 line 0.15 -0.2 0.55 -0.2 line 0.55 -0.2 0.25 0.1 line 0.25 0.1 0.4 0.6 line 0.4 0.6 0.05 0.3 line 0.05 0.3 -0.3 0.6 line -0.3 0.6 -0.18 0.11 line -0.18 0.11 -0.55 -0.175 ; This code was used, as shown here, to create the animation above

As you can see, it follows the same approach as the previous example with a few subtle differences:

  • The polygon starts at the center of the action image
    initxy 0.5 0.5
  • There is only 1 polygon
    repeats 1 1
    Likewise no offsets are necessary
  • The polygon spins about its center
    rotate 0 360
  • The polygon is more complex.
