Multiply lines



  • hey there,

    i think it´s a stupid and simple question but i´m at a loss:
    how do i multiply lines / images? i´ve created a line via the shape actor and want to create let´s say 10 of them and define the distance. 
    any idea?
    thank´s in advance,
    stefanie

    I don't know if this is the most efficient way but if you add several "Projector" actors and input the same "Lines" output you could use the projector for horz and vert offset, and the spin input of the projector can give you a bit more control.

  • hey michel,

    thank´s! this might at least be an option. i guess there is no effect i could use to multiply lines easily - just to save performance and the need of using many actors?

  • You could use the stage background actor, and adjust the offset value. 

    There is also a way to use a particle generator and make it pulse at specific positions while having the particle last for as long as needed.
    To use just the shape actor, I'd probably use multiple shape actors and offset the them  it's more flexible if you want  manipulate the entire construction of lines
    these are some of the options I'd look into, but the implementation depends on the scope of the scene

    mmmh just uploaded a 1.6 mb zip file without a problem, took about 15 seconds. What browser are you using? How large is the file?

  • @Michel
    this is weird, i have updates to 23.0.1 (not that I believed it could have make any difference in this case...), nothing changed!! I understand that it does let me upload a .jpeg (even double the size) but not a .zip nor a .izz
