Twisted contraptions


#21

Man, I love your weird videos : P This stuff looks so damn freaky

Best comment ever. Thanks!

I was thinking about the parameter space where these forms live. Ideally, every new feature adds another dimension to that space. With a bunch of knob twiddling you can explore that space and discover these twisted contraptions. Finding a form you like, is basically punching in a set of coordinates. It should be trivial to take a snapshot of that. Then you could lerp between snapshots to create drastic animated changes to those forms.

Woah…I really like that idea.

I suppose you could do that in Sequencer, but it feels too cumbersome. I want to hit P on my keyboard to punch in a snapshot. The left/right arrow keys could be used to transition between snapshots. And it should be dynamic. I have this old BP tweening system I should go dig up:

tween_node

Now if I could just get the engine to build :man_facepalming:

Ugh…I always forget to delete Intermediates. That’s it. Adding this to my .bashrc:

alias nai='find . -type d -name Intermediate | xargs rm -rf'

Load the changes:

$ source .bashrc

Now I can nuke all intermediates with one command:

$ nai
