So I’m trying out another experiment. I want to create a moving element using the “Back and Forth Motion” recipe, but at the bottom of the movement sync with another image that is also working in time with a transparency feature. For instance using the prototype here:
I have a simple static image of Mario jumping. At the bottom of his jump (where he should be touching ground), I want to replace his image with another one where he is in a standing position.
When I run the sequence on either the editor or on my watch, I notice that the movements get out of sync. The time in the standing Mario seems to be moving ever so slightly faster causing this image to become transparent earlier and earlier. Either that or the ‘jumping’ Mario is moving slower than the #DWFSS# time is counting off. Is the recipe for the back and forth motion slowed down at all with this:
(230 + sin((#DWFSS#))*25)
230 is the starting (or middle) position
25 should be the extent of the SIN wave height (is this correct?)
No other numbers are interacting with the #DWFSS# tag.
The ‘standing’ Mario is running on the following formula:
Note: I do need to adjust the timing somewhat for the interval, but notice that there is some calculation putting these out of sync.It must be in this formula somewhere? Should I convert this to a SIN wave function as well with a similar IF/Than statement?
