Y-axis Values 

Four Motion-Derivatives :

Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk

Two Data-boxes (for each Motion-Derivative) :

Red-14-1b End (motion-value) of Previous Segment (Read-Only or Read-Write)

The data-box where you enter the motion-value for the End of the Previous-Segment.

E.g.: In the image above, the motion-value at the:

Red-14-1 End of the Previous-Segment = 10mm


Red-14-2 Start (motion-value) of the Selected-Segment (Read-Only or Read-Write)

The data-box where you enter the motion-value for the Start of the Selected-Segment.

E.g.: In the image above, the motion-value at the:

Red-14-2 Start of the Selected-Segment = 30mm


These data-boxes have two possible states: Read-Only and Read-Write

The Motion-Law, Motion-Derivative and the Control-Buttons determine the state of the two data-boxes.

Three Control Buttons Red-14-3Red-14-4Red-14-5 (for each Motion-Derivative) :

Red-14-3 End Control-Button - controls if you can specify the motion-value for the End of the Previous-Segment.

It has three(3) possible states - Do Edit, Do Not Edit, and Can Not Edit


Red-14-4 Match Control-Button - controls flow of motion-values from the Previous-Segment to the Selected-Segment . It has two(2) possible states -  

Do Force Start of the Selected-Segment = End of the Previous-Segment

Do NOT Force Start of the Selected-Segment = End of the Previous-Segment


Red-14-5 Start Control-Button - control if you can specify the motion-value for the Start-of the Selected-Segment.

It has three(3) possible states - Do Edit, Do Not Edit, and Can Not Edit


There are eight(8) different settings of the Three Control-Buttons. See Control Buttons: States and Patterns

Example: Blend-Point Editor: Three(3) Control-Buttons, EACH Motion-Derivative

MT-BPE-YaxisValues

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

EDIT the motion-value ...at END of Previous-Segment

DO NOT force the start (motion-value) to equal the end (motion-value)

EDIT the motion-value ...at START of the Selected-Segment
