  • Simulated Animation Effects Week#4

    After getting simulated animation effects somewhat a presentable state in week 3 on my experimental branch, this week my goal was to make them saveable. Since I wanted them to be saveable on SMIL hierarchies, like the rest of the animations, I’ve started by creating new xml tokens that’ll be used and named them “motion-simulated” and “animateSimulation”. Made required connections for importing/exporting these animation effects mimicking how path motion is imported/exported. Later created a new animation preset on Effects.xcu for testing purposes and called it arbitarily “Simulated Basic”. And lastly, connected stuff with animation effects panel creating a new category there for simulated animations.
