Speed control with Spline Speed Controller

Post by fonhorn » Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:32 pm

As a forensic animator, I want to have complete control over the speeds of objects in my scenes. The name, "Spline Speed Controller" seems to indicate that it can be done with this tool. I have tried unsuccessfully, over the last few months, to harness that control. I have tried using, both, Max splines and Craft Curves.

When a vehicle crosses a Waypoint, I would like to have it going the speed that I set in the Waypoint's configuration. I would like to be able to set the point at which my vehicle begins to change its speed to the one designated within the Waypoint. Have I missed something? Is there a way to do this?

I would like to see a curve of the object's motion and speed within Max's curve editor. Is there a way to do this? Have I missed something?

Without that kind of control, Max's Path Constraint, Maxscript, and Curve Editor (with the vehicle plugins) are better choices for speed control.

When I first purchased Spline Speed Controller it was marketed as a tool to be used with the vehicle plugins. Now, it has become a camera tool. That probably explains my issue; but, if anybody knows how to get more control out of SSC, I would like to hear it.
