# Tutorial 12: Review Control-Buttons in Blend-Point Editor

## Blend-Point Editor Control-buttons

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

A.Motion-Law

B.Motion-Derivative

C.Control-Buttons States

Therefore, it is important to understand how to use the Control-Buttons that are in the Blend-Point Editor [and the Segment-Editor] for each motion-derivative.

### CONTROL-BUTTONS DEFINITIONS

Each motion-derivative (P V A J) has three Control-Buttons.

The possible states of each Control-Button are defined below.

Button

Definition:

Do Edit End :  It is possible AND a motion value is specified

Do Not Edit End : It is possible, but a motion-value is NOT specified

Can Not Edit End : It is NOT possible to specify a motion-value.

Do Not Blend : Motion-Value at the Start of the Selected-Segment is not forced to equal motion-value at the End of the Previous-Segment

Do Blend : Motion-Value at the Start of the Selected-Segment is forced to equal motion-value at the End of the Previous

Do Edit Start :  It is possible AND a motion value is specified

Do Not Edit Start : It is possible, but a motion-value is NOT specified

Can Not Edit Start : It is NOT possible to specify a motion-value.

### Control-Button: Patterns: 1- 8

Each Control-Button has different states. Thus, we can combine the different states in different ways.

The three Control-Buttons have eight possible patterns. These are:

#### Pattern 1

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶ Start of Selected-Segment : Possible BUT NOT given a value ▶ End of the Previous-Segment ≠ Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : Possible BUT NOT given a value

#### Pattern 2

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶ Start of Selected-Segment : Possible BUT NOT given a value ▶ End of the Previous-Segment ≠ Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : Possible AND given a value

#### Pattern 3

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶ Start of Selected-Segment : Possible AND given a value ▶ End of the Previous-Segment ≠ Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : Possible BUT NOT given a value

#### Pattern 4

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶  Start of Selected-Segment : Possible AND given a value ▶ End of the Previous-Segment ≠ Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : Possible AND given a value

#### Pattern 5

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶  Start of Selected-Segment : NOT possible to give a value [Motion-Law] ▶ End of the Previous-Segment = Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : Possible BUT NOT given a value

#### Pattern 6

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶  Start of Selected-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value ▶ End of the Previous-Segment = Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : Possible AND given a value

#### Pattern 7

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶  Start of Selected-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value ▶ End of the Previous-Segment = Start of the Selected-Segment ▶ End of Previous-Segment : NOT possible to specify a value

#### Pattern 8

 ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▶ Start of Selected-Segment : Possible 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
