Unhappy walkto plays no animation...

Hi,

Could someone help?

Code:
male.act(vizact.walkto([3,0,8], 10.5, 90, walkAnim=male.getAnimationID('male_walk.cax')))
and

Code:
male.act(vizact.walkto([3,0,8], 10.5, 90, 2))
Both code move my character to new location, but no animation is being played. Did I do something wrong?

Kind Regards,
Iwan

Unhappy It's not working...?

I pasted my code here. The guy is supposedly running around making a big circle, but he only stretches his arms while sliding around.

Code:
import viz
import math

iwan = []
for i in range(20):
	n = [math.sin(i)*1, 0, math.cos(i)+1]
	iwan.append(n)
	
print iwan

male = viz.add('male.cfg')
male.idlepose(12) #Use animation 12 as the idle pose

for each in iwan:
	print "male.act(vizact.walkto(",each,"))"
	male.addAction(vizact.walkto(each, 1.5, 90, 2)) # 2=walking anim
	
if __name__ == "__main__":
	viz.go()
Could someone tell me where the mistakes that I made in my script?
Thank you very much.

The vizact.walkto command does not accept lists for the position. This will be fixed in a future release. For now you must use the following code instead:
Code:
vizact.walkto(each[0],each[1],each[2], walkSpeed=1.5, turnSpeed=90, walkAnim=2)

Red face Thank you...

Hi,

Thank you. Why didn't I try that before?
I will keep in mind that "vizact.walk" does not accept lists to specify position.

Have a great day.

Unhappy walkTo ... does not reach final destination....

Hi,

I used for loops to read geometries that define the walkTo's coordinates.
Vizard read them okay. Please see the terminal window. However, Vizard did not finish the movement properly. The ducks are 1 coordinate behind the final destinations.

I did try to type in the last command to force the duck to go to the final destination, but it didn't do anything.

The coordinates are all in order, I did not missed a single one.

Could someone point out where did I (possibly) go wrong?

Kind Regards,
Iwan

Can you post a sample script that reproduces the problem? It's difficult to tell what the problem is by looking at the screenshot.

Any ideas, or insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

I ran your script but nothing is happening. Your script loads the path points from a file called 'antMovementPoints.osg', which was not included. Can you post this file, or modify your script so that it does not depend on it?

Your sample script still does not do anything. Can you post a fully working script that I can immediately run and witness the problem. For example, there is no viz.go() statement in your script. Even when I added the viz.go() the ducks never start any actions and I don't see any key commands to initiate them.

Red face Solved~!

Hi,

I do apologise for making you running around in a circle. I did not explain the script fully. I tried to post the full code, but this forum refused it, being too lengthy. What I posted previously was a module of a bigger simulation program. You need to add viz.go() as well at the end of the program.

I do apologise.... T_T

You may use these following these commands (in the terminal window) to make them run...

controlAction()
stiltsAction(), and
stumpsAction()

..to make them run.

I just found the solution. I increased the spacing between the movement points and it works just fine. Apparently, my spacing between points were too small. I Increased the spacing and it works really well.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
Iwan

Hi,

The current walkTo always restart the animation whenever a walkTo point is reached. Therefore, it gives impression of a jagged movement with lot of walkTo points in the scene.

Is there a way to use walkTo without having re-starting the animation at a new point? i.e. Getting a an avatar to run along given points without walkTo reset animation at every points.

Thank you kindly.

You can manually set the animation of the avatar and use vizact.goto instead of vizact.walkto. Once the final destination has been reached you can clear the animation manually.

Hi,

Yes, goto works fine. But it doesn't rotate the direction of the avatar automatically. I better stick with walkto.
Thank you for your replies

Kind Regards,
iwan

The next release of Vizard will allow specifying None as the walk animation, which will not affect the animation state.
