 Resize a shape in one dimention
 Revolt Member     Status: Offline Posts: 33 Join Date: Oct 2010 Resize a shape in one dimention - 04-16-2011, 08:28 PM When I go to resize a shape in Alice (like a cylinder), it resizes proportionally, meaning that all three dimensions (X,Y,and Z) get resized too. Is there a way (and how) to resize a shape in only one dimension? (Ex: making the cylinder longer without making it any wider) Rock, Paper, Scissors, Chuck Norris. Rock wins. And by rock, I really mean Chuck Norris.

Sorry I sound like a n00b, but I could really use your help. Rock, Paper, Scissors, Chuck Norris. Rock wins. And by rock, I really mean Chuck Norris.

Do you know how to use methods Revolt? Projects -Escape the Kitchen -That ninja animation -Hill Collision Upcoming Projects -Some penguin adventure game?

I know how to use methods (like move at speed, turn, roll, etc.), but 1) I doubt those are the kind of methods you guys are talking about, and 2) I have no idea what "runtime" is. I'm not new to Alice, but I've never had to elongate an object in one dimension. I appreciate how helpful you guys are, but I'm afraid I'll need some more instruction on the steps to do this.

You can't resize in one dimension in the object editor (what you see before you press "Play"), but to resize in just one dimension during runtime (when you press "Play"), just click "more" in the resize method.

The picture should be self-explanatory; tell us if you're still unsure.

I have been dead for quite some time now; not much hope for resurrection.
