Blend-Point Editor Control-buttons

It is extremely important to understand how to use the three[3] control-buttons that are in the Blend-Point Editor [and the Segment-Editor] for each motion-derivative.

Whether it is possible to specify a motion-value is a function of the:

A.Motion-Law
B.Motion-Derivative
C.Control-Buttons States

CONTROL-BUTTONS IN THE BLEND-POINT EDITOR

Button

Definition:

BPE-EditEnd

'Specify' state:  Possible to give the motion-value AND it is given a motion-value

BPE-DoNotEditEnd

'Do Not Specify' state : Possible to give the motion-value BUT it is not given a motion-value [do not specify state]

BPE-CanNotEditEnd

'Can Not Specify' state : It is not possible to give the motion-value [can not specify state]

BPE-CB-DoNotFlow

'Do Not Blend' the End of the Previous to the Start of the Selected-Segment

BPE-CB-DoFlow

'Do Blend' the End of the Previous to the Start of the Selected-Segment

BPE-EditEnd

'Specify' state:  Possible to give the motion-value AND it is given a motion-value

BPE-DoNotEditEnd

'Do Not Specify' state : Possible to give the motion-value BUT it is not given a motion-value

BPE-CanNotEditEnd

'Can Not Specify' state : It is not possible to give the motion-value.

Control-Button: Patterns: 1- 8

Pattern 1

BPE-CBPatterns-1

BPE-3CB-1



Start of Selected-Segment : Possible to specify a value BUT NOT given a value

'End of the Previous-Segment' 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : Possible to specify a value AND NOT given a value


Pattern 2

BPE-CBPatterns-2

BPE-3CB-2



Start of Selected-Segment : Possible to specify a value BUT NOT given a value

'End of the Previous-Segment' 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : Possible to specify a value AND given a value


Pattern 3

BPE-CBPatterns-3

BPE-3CB-3



Start of Selected-Segment : Possible to specify a value AND given a value

'End of the Previous-Segment' 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : Possible to specify a value BUT NOT given a value


Pattern 4

BPE-CBPatterns-4

BPE-3CB-4



Start of Selected-Segment : Possible to specify a value AND given a value

'End of the Previous-Segment' 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : Possible to specify a value AND given a value


Pattern 5

BPE-CBPatterns-5

BPE-3CB-5



Start of Selected-Segment : NOT possible to give a value, because the ...

... 'End of the Previous-Segment' = 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : Possible to specify a value BUT NOT given a value


Pattern 6

BPE-CBPatterns-6

BPE-3CB-6



Start of Selected-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value, because the ...

... 'End of the Previous-Segment' = 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : Possible to specify a value AND given a value


Pattern 7

BPE-CBPatterns-7

BPE-3CB-7



Start of Selected-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value, because the ...

... 'End of the Previous-Segment' = 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value


Pattern 8

BPE-CBPatterns-8

BPE-3CB-8



Start of Selected-Segment : Possible to specify a value BUT NOT given a value

'End of the Previous-Segment' 'Start of the Selected-Segment'

End of Previous-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value
