Another small but useful utility for five minutes using the UI Builder. The point is to create every N frames pose for a character.


All interface elements I arranged with the help of UI Builder, then added an event to button presses

startF = int(edtStart.Value)

stopF = int(edtStop.Value)

stepF = int(edtStep.Value)

time = FBTime()

lChar = FBApplication().CurrentCharacter

for i in range(startF, stopF, stepF):

time.SetTime(0,0,0, i)



pose = FBCharacterPose( str(i) )

pose.CopyPose( lChar )

here I am taking the start of the range, the end of the range and the step. All values are specified in frames. Then do a loop and each next frame update scene by calling FBSystem (). Scene.Evaluate ()

The pose is created very simply – by calling the constructor FBCharacterPose (<name of the pose>) and method CopyPose
