What is the Advanced Motion Lab in Bryce?

NOTE: This article refers to the Bryce 6 PDF, available here.

 

When clicked on, the small arrow below the Advanced Motion Lab camera presets displays a pull-down menu with new options. They are:

  1. "Show Selected" - This toggles between displaying only the selected objects and all objects in the hierarchy list area. (See pages 302 - 303 in the manual for a complete description of hierarchies and the hierarchy list area.)
  2. "Show Animated"- This toggles between displaying only animated objects (any object that has at least one key frame) and all objects in the hierarchy list area.
  3. "Display Hierarchy" - This toggles between displaying and not displaying the hierarchical relationship in the hierarchy list area.
  4. "Snap to Frames" - This forces the time scrubber to snap to the next or previous frame when being dragged.
  5. "Real-time Linking" - This forces the preview window to update in real-time when dragging on the time scrubber. (You should only turn this off if you have a very slow CPU)
  6. "Expand All Timelines" - This displays the attributes and their timelines for all objects listed in the hierarchy list area.
  7. "Collapse All Timelines" - This hides the attributes and their timelines for all objects listed in the hierarchy list area.
  8. "Expand All Hierarchies" - This displays the children and their timelines for all objects in the hierarchy list area.
  9. "Collapse All Hierarchies" - This hides the children and their timelines for all objects listed in the hierarchy list area.

Above the Time Mapping Curve Editor are 8 time mapping curve presets. Here a preset of the current curve can be created then applied to a different attribute of the same object or another object. To add the preset click in one of the blank squares. To apply a preset click in the square that displays the preset you want to apply. To remove a preset Option/Alt click on the square that displays the preset you want to delete. When all the preset slots are filled a new one is automatically generated.

To scroll to it or the next preset in line click on the end of the preset container. (For more information on the Time Mapping Curve Editor see pages 19 & 47 in the manual).The memory dots at the bottom of the Advanced Motion Lab record the time scrubber position. To record, click on a blank memory dot and the current time scrubber position will be recorded. To use a stored/full memory dot simply click on it. To clear a stored/full memory dot Option/Alt click on it.Holding down the Space Bar while dragging on a timeline allows you to pan through a timeline without using the Time Scrubber.
