Y-axis Values 

It is important to understand that the Y-axis values are a function of the:

Motion-Law

Motion-Derivative

Control-Buttons Settings.


Control-Buttons:

Use the settings of the three Control-ButtonsRed-14-1Red-14-2Red-14-3 in Y-axis Values to specify or not-specify a motion-value of each motion-derivative.

Red-14-1b Do you want the value at the Start of the Selected-Segment to = or ≠ the End-Value of the Previous-Segment?

Red-14-2 Do you want to specify, or not-specify, the value at the Start of the Selected-Segment?

Red-14-3 Do you want to specify, or not-specify, the value at the End-Value of the Selected-Segment?

See: Segment-Editor : Control-Buttons


Motion Laws and Motion-Derivatives

It is the Motion-Law that determines whether you can edit a motion-value for a particular motion-derivative.

For example:

Flexible-Polynomial Motion-Law : you can edit the motion-values of all motion-derivatives ( P,V,A,J )

Traditional Motion-Laws : you can frequently only edit the motion-value of the position motion-derivative

MT-SE-Y-AxisValues

Control Buttons States

FLOW is active

The motion-value at the Start of the Selected-Segment ...

... automatically becomes [forced to be] equal to the motion-values at the End of the Previous-Segment

or

FLOW is Not Active

AND IF: Start is Active

You can edit the motion-values at the Start of the Selected-Segment

AND IF: Start is Not Active:

You will not edit the motion-values at the Start of the Selected-Segment [but you could, if click the icon to make it 'Start is Active'

AND IF: Start is In-Active

You cannot possibly edit the motion-values at the Start of the Selected-Segment
