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

Motion-Values:

BPE-EditEnd

Specify :  Possible AND given a motion-value

BPE-DoNotEditEnd

Do Not Specify : Possible BUT NOT given a motion-value [do not specify state]

BPE-CanNotEditEnd

Can Not Specify : NOT possible to give a motion-value [can not specify state]

BPE-CB-DoNotFlow

Do Not Blend : End of the Previous = Start of the Selected-Segment

BPE-CB-DoFlow

Do Blend : End of the Previous = Start of the Selected-Segment

BPE-EditEnd

Specify :  Possible AND given a motion-value

BPE-DoNotEditEnd

Do Not Specify : Possible BUT not given a motion-value

BPE-CanNotEditEnd

Can Not Specify : NOT possible to give a motion-value.
