Here’s what I want to do…
I have a set of buttons that are dark. I want them to look like they are “waking up” by going to a half lit state, then a fully lit state.
Once they wake up, I want them to stay lit, or at least stay lit for a while, then it can loop.
It should look like this…
OFF, HALF, ON, HALF, ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
Then it can loop. The problem seems to be that either the app can recognize that I’m loading the same file over again or something because the animation that it creates is just OFF, HALF, ON, HALF, ON, OFF then it loops.
I guess my question is how do I get my animation to effectively “pause” at a certain point?
Whew, I think I’m in over my head lol. Though the two animation idea might work for what I’m doing.
I guess I’d, well, how do I start a different animation after the previous one has stopped? Wait, I see, so the first one plays the blink sequence once, no loop, then stops, WHILE the second one is SLOWLY fading in over the top of it, also no loop then stays on. Is that what you were thinking?
That WOULD work for this. Could I loop those? (Could there be a way they could add a “pause” function inside the image sequence tool thing? You could set it to pause for a certain number of seconds, and add it just like you add an image.)
As far as the other formula posted, sin will definitely achieve the fade in and out you’re trying for… think of it as a wave going from 0 to 100. Compare it to using cos and you can have two animations alternating – one with sin, one with cos. So when one fades out, the other fades in and they alternate.
The DWE tag is one of the time related tags, in this case DWE is the tag signaling onWake. It can be DWFSS (seconds) DWFK (hour) DWFM (minute), etc.
