First thing - The administrator of this forum should now allow for "a3p" files to be uploaded


Here are a few observations while doing my first program

a) Human Models - are good, alas, I didnt find "Walking" method (procedures). but there are other seldom used methods like "shuffle feet" . Some popular methods like "hug", "wave arms< "handshake" could have been implemented. Nonetheless, on a Windows Vista Graphics on Sony Vaio Laptop, the human models look awesome
b) Export option isnt there. At least basic export to Video could have been there, so that people who dont have Alice 3 could have a look of the feutres on Utube etc
c) The a3p file sizes are very small. That is a good news in Alice 3
d) I am not also able to find out how to set "default" properties. Example before start of the animaiton, I want an object to be opacity=1. How do I set that


Anyway here is my first example of using methods (oops procedures), functions


Alice 3 file - as an attachment
Video of the animation - as an attachment


Cheers

- try "do together" with "shuffle feet" and "move

- this seems to be present in 0059

- yes!

- for models that support opacity (this doesn't seem to include the SIMs for now), say you have, from Generic alice models, a cube, you would "edit constructor" (from class: MyCube), and then drag in from the properties tab for MyCube the [{this (a.k.a. cube)} Opacity <- {???}] tile, you will be asked to set it to a value, pick what you need
