F4M - event animation properties

Static laser shows are quite boring. It's a lot better to animate your scenes. Event animation properties are first step to do so.




Event Animation Properties

To display event animation properties you have to use left mouse double-click on your event. Following panel appears below the event.

Event animation properties for Shapes



As you can see, you can use Brightness, Size and Rotation event animation properties for Shapes. Other image generators might use different properties. Event animation property can be animated - you can define curve, which defines e.g. brightness or other property in every point of the time during the duration of the event. This allows you to e.g. fade in the shape:

Of course, you can add multiple keyframe points to your brightness (or other) curve. Just use left mouse double-click on event's curve. This allows you to create e.g fade in followed by fade out animation.

You can use the same tools to edit Size or Rotation of the event.

You can really define crazy curves for your event animations. And well sometimes it's actually practical.
