Motion Graphics UDF

Recommended Posts

scintilla4evr

Hello! I've been working on this UDF for some time, but when I read Seeking "kinetic typography" capability in au3 topic, I decided to share it. This UDF brings some functions for creating animations in GDI+ without worrying about rendering or calculating.

Features:

  • Adding basic shapes (rectangle, ellipse) and text
  • Animating object properties (like position or size)
  • Animatable transformations (translate, rotate, scale)
  • Double-buffering
  • Rendering to a window or GUI control

Enjoy!

Very nice.

About the problem with Au3Check in your script.

Try to not use this kind of notation:

Local $hBrush = ($oOutline.brush)($iTime)

but instead use this:

Local $hBrush = $oOutline.brush($iTime)

 

try my "Example 1 - Basic Animation.au3"  modyfcation Motion Graphics UDF 0.0.2_mod.zip

You will see what I mean.

EDIT: Need some more learning ;)

Pretty neat demos and UDF; thanks for sharing  When I run most of them (at least on this PC) they start out very fast, then slow down-not gradually, instantly.  When I move the mouse the speed picks up again and when the mouse is at rest for a few moments, the speed drops again.  

Does this happen to you?

Yes, I think it's something with AutoIt's GUI, because it happens in every script that renders something with GDI+ like this.

Thanks, again, for this UDF.  You've added impressive capabilities in these updates.

But could you provide one more example?: show simple typing of a couple of text strings ... with some timing control parameter to adjust the rate of display.

I see how to control text sliding into view.  But I'm unsure of how to produce a typing effect.

I'm sorry to keep bringing this up.  With all your great additions, I still can't manage to control the pace of the text display.  The following, for example, has no affect other than delaying the display of the end result.

:
$oScene = _MoGraph_SceneCreate()

$oText = _MoGraph_TextCreate(_MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate("Lorem ipsum dolor", 0, 50, $MOGRAPH_TXTANIM_LEFTTORIGHT), 10, 10, 380, 0, "Impact", 36, 0)
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText)
Sleep(1000)
$oText2 = _MoGraph_TextCreate(_MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate("Lorem ipsum dolor", 0, 50, $MOGRAPH_TXTANIM_RIGHTTOLEFT), 10, 60, 380, 0, "Impact", 36, 0)
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText2)
Sleep(1000)
:

With so much capability, I hope there's a way to orchestrate use of the features with timing.  Am I just missing it?

To delay the text animation, you have to change the 2nd and 3rd parameters in the _MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate calls. Adding Sleep() doesn't affect the rendering, because timing is calculated when calling _MoGraph_RendererRenderFrame() or _MoGraph_RendererRenderNextFrame().

Here is the basic idea of how to add delay:

; mumbo jumbo code before

$iStart = 100
$iLength = 50

$oText = _MoGraph_TextCreate(_MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate("Lorem ipsum dolor", $iStart, $iStart+$iLength, $MOGRAPH_TXTANIM_LEFTTORIGHT), 10, 10, 380, 0, "Impact", 36, 0)
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText)

; blah blah after

Thanks for your response. 

I did a simple substitution to confirm what I think you're saying, but I got an unexpected result:

a "slot-machine" effect on the last two lines, followed by the first two lines flowing into view from the left.

:
$oText = _MoGraph_TextCreate(_MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate("Lorem ipsum dolor", 100, 150, $MOGRAPH_TXTANIM_LEFTTORIGHT), 10, 10, 380, 0, "Impact", 36, 0)
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText)

$oText2 = _MoGraph_TextCreate(_MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate("Lorem ipsum dolor", 100, 150, $MOGRAPH_TXTANIM_RIGHTTOLEFT), 10, 60, 380, 0, "Impact", 36, 0)
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText2)
:

Is there another parameter involved?

No, because _MoGraph_AnimatedStringCreate does not affect the starting position of the text. It only changes the contents. If you want the 2nd string to flow into view from the right you can do one of two things:

  • add an EaseValue to control the position of the text
  • set $iHorzAlign argument (10th) of _MoGraph_TextCreate to 2, so the text will be aligned to right

What you're describing seem to be tweaks to specific internal functions rather than a general capability to choreograph entire sequences ... sequences that can produce a dynamic text result like the example on this site: here

Can you describe how a general capability should be implemented?

To choreograph sequences like this, you need to break down all animations to small parts that can be represented with "keyframes".

In the "I LOVE blah blah", you can find 4 animations (in order of appearance):

  1. Letter 'I' rolling from the bottom
  2. Word 'LOVE' rolling from the left
  3. Word 'KINETIC' rolling from the right
  4. Word 'TYPOGRAPHY' rolling from top

No, you have to translate these animations into code (I Love Kinetic Typography.au3):

; Move 'I' at the start from 340;230 to 340;140:
$oI_YValue = _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate(230, 140, 0, 50)
$oText_I = _MoGraph_TextCreate("I", 340, $oI_YValue, 0, 0, "Rockwell", 48, 1, _MoGraph_SolidBrushCreate(0, 0, 0, 220))
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText_I)

; Move 'LOVE' after 'I' from -160;100 to 20;100:
; 3rd argument is 50 to match the end of 'I' animation
; 4th argument is the end of animation (start+length)
$oLove_XValue = _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate(-160, 20, 50, 100)
$oText_Love = _MoGraph_TextCreate("LOVE", $oLove_XValue, 100, 0, 0, "Rockwell", 48, 1, _MoGraph_SolidBrushCreate(0, 0, 0, 160))
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText_Love)

; Move 'KINETIC' after 'LOVE' from 520;100 to 190;100
$oKinetic_XValue = _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate(520, 190, 100, 150)
$oText_Kinetic = _MoGraph_TextCreate("KINETIC", $oKinetic_XValue, 100, 0, 0, "Rockwell", 48, 1, _MoGraph_SolidBrushCreate(0, 0, 0, 220))
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText_Kinetic)

; Move 'TYPOGRAPHY' after 'KINETIC' from 110;-60 to 110;60
$oTypography_YValue = _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate(-60, 60, 150, 200)
$oText_Typography = _MoGraph_TextCreate("TYPOGRAPHY", 110, $oTypography_YValue, 0, 0, "Rockwell", 48, 1, _MoGraph_SolidBrushCreate(0, 0, 0, 220))
_MoGraph_SceneAddObject($oScene, $oText_Typography)

The most important types of all these sequences are objects created using _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate or _MoGraph_KeyframedValueCreate. Here is the basic syntax for both of these functions:

  • _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate($iValueStart, $iValueEnd, $iStart = 0, $iEnd = 100, $oEasing = _MoGraph_LinearEasingCreate())
    • $iValueStart - value the object will represent before the animation will start
    • $iValueEnd - value the object will represent after the animation ends
    • $iStart - time when the animation should start
    • $iEnd - time when the animation ends (start time + animation length)
    • $oEasing - object representing how the value will change

If the current time is between $iStart and $iEnd, the output value will also be between $iValueStart and $iValueEnd

  • _MoGraph_KeyframedValueCreate($aKeyframes)
    • $aKeyframes - 2D array of time-value pairs

_MoGraph_KeyframedValueCreate is basically a wrapper function for multiple _MoGraph_EaseValueCreate's

Almost there.  I generally follow what you're saying, but the example script produced an empty screen, for me.  I confirmed that each of the 4 steps is executing, but the resulting GUI is blank.

Any idea what's missing?  (New example is on the same directory as MoGraphics.au3, and the other examples still display properly.)

I think you don't have Rockwell font installed. Change it to something else, like Times New Roman or Courier New.

An excellent analysis!  I completely overlooked that.

Clarendon gives me the kind of result I was hoping for.  With only a couple adjustments, I was able to get what I've posted below.

Thanks for sticking with me on this.  And thanks for a great UDF!

      AutoIt Windows Screenshooter
      Key Features:
      takes easily a screenshot from any visible window capture any region of the desktop incl. freehand capturing capture GUI controls and GUI menus separately capture a marked area every x seconds for a duration of y seconds create a GIF animation from saved frames (Vista or higher os required) capture to AVI file (without audio!) takes a screenshot from web sites (available only on Win7+ os and when Aero is enabled) put images to clipboard to paste to other applications easily color picker save image in different formats and also to PDF! add timestamp to saved images simple image editing options: greyscale, b&w, invert, rotate +-90° send image to printer and default email client preview of captured screens incl. zoom option multi monitor support display pixel color under mouse ruler basic image editor (paint, highlight, ellipse, rectangle, text and some graphic FX) watermark captured image no 3rd party tools or DLLs used - pure AutoIt! fully portable - no installation is needed multi language feature (Eng, Ger, Tur, Fra and Rus only) To do:
      capture content of scrollable window/control capture cascaded menus Due to DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "PrintWindow", "hwnd", $hWnd, "handle", $hMemDC, "int", 0) limitation some windows cannot be captured properly (GDI+, ProgDVB, etc.) but can take screenshots of hidden windows. One workaround is to use full screen capturing (F11/F12) or "Grab Screen" function! Or try double click with rmb on listview items (beta).

      Numpad -: zoom out preview window or mouse wheel up
      F1: capture again on last position
      F5: refresh Windows Name list
      PRINTSCREEN: take screenshot from whole screen
      ALT+PRINTSCR: take a screenshot from active window
      F10: Undo made changes with Image Editing function
      F11: take screenshot from whole screen incl mouse cursor
      F12: take screenshot from whole screen
      Ctrl+Alt+F9 start "Grab Screen" mode
      Ctrl+Alt+F12: take a screenshot from active window using alternative screenshot functionality (beta)!
      Ctrl+r: call ruler
      Ctrl+s: save current displayed image
      Ctrl+x: exit program
      ctrl+w: call web grab input field (available only when Aero is enabled)
      Ctrl+i: call image editor
      Ctrl+m: call watermark editor
      Ctrl+z: undo
      Only available on Vista+ os: double click with rmb on list items to use alternative screenshot functionality (beta)!
      When 'Grab Screen' is clicked you can hold down the ctrl key to switch to 'grab controls' mode. Control under mouse will be framed red.
      ctrl + shift will take the screenshot of appropriate control. To capture GUI menus you can press rmb which simulates the lmb. When a menu is opened press shift additionally to capture it.
      Press and hold only the shift key to capture any region on the desktop using freehand capturing - release it so capture marked regions!
      Or just mark resize able area which you want to grab. Press CTRL key to grab marked area or right mouse button to capture the marked area every x seconds for a duration of y seconds.
      When saving the image just enter the extension you wish to use (*.jpg;*.png;*.bmp;*.gif;*.tif;*.pdf). Big thanks to taietel for his PDF UDF!

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
       
      Tested on Win10 x64 only.

      Hey, All!
       
      I was looking into the help file at all the drawing utilities and I was wondering if you draw a translucent line that follows your cursor. Upon looking for ideas I came across this thread (1.0) and saw UEZ's response. I also came across another post that UEZ replied to and found this reply (1.1) where he shows how you can draw on the desktop. This is what I'm looking for however I'd still like to be able to interact with a designated application and have the line/curve/vector passively follow it. Obviously we don't move our cursor very linearly so it would have to be able to draw on vectors. Am I over complicating this? 
      Any ideas or starting points I should look more into?

      Hello,
      I am making a program where the button is an image that "changes" when specific conditions are fullfilled. Problem is that these images have different dimensions and when a smaller picture is displayed over a bigger one both will be seen, therefore i would like the images to be hidden, invincible or, alternatively, deleted.
      I have tried using _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear() with no luck
      However that might just be me not using it right as im quite new to autoit
