Blend-Point Editor: Y-axis Controls


The motion-values of a Blend-Point are its:

X-axis Values : [see Blend-Point: X-axis]
Y-axis Values : Position, Velocity, Acceleration and Jerk motion-values.

Each Blend-Point has two Y-axis values, for each motion-derivative.

IN THE IMAGE [to the left] you can see the two Y-axis values at one Blend-Point in the Position-Graph.

Most typically, the Positions at each Blend-Point are identical. However, to illustrate the point:

1s-red End of the Previous-Segment = 40mm

2s Start of the Selected-Segment = 60mm

IN THE BLEND-POINT EDITOR [see image below] Y-axis values  for Position only are:

1s-red End Position motion-value = 40mm

3s4s5s 3 Control-Buttons

2s Start Position motion-value = 60mm

There are 8 different possible settings of the Control-Buttons - see Control Buttons: States and Patterns'

Example: Blend-Point Editor: Three[3] Control-Buttons, EACH Motion-Derivative


See Blend-Point Editor: Control-Buttons 'States and Patterns'

... all possibilities of the Blend-Point Control buttons.

In this example, the states of the 3 Control-Buttons are:

Edit, OR  Do not edit OR not possible to edit the motion-value END of previous-segment:

Position...Velocity... Acceleration... Jerk

Blend or Do not Blend End with Start motion-values.

Edit or  Do not edit, or  It is not possible to edit' the motion-value START of the Selected-Segment

Position... Velocity... Acceleration... Jerk
