The shape of a Genmesh can be animated using an
animation controller (classes
An animation controller is given the ability to modify the state and shape of the mesh, i.e. mainly the main render buffers of the mesh such as the vertices, the triangles, the normals, the bitangents, along with other parameters such as the bounding box.
An animation controller is associated to a Genmesh using the methods
iGeneralMeshState::SetAnimationControl(). If a Genmesh has an animation
controller, then this controller will have its various methods
iGenMeshAnimationControl::UpdateXXX() called every frame, whenever the
mesh is visible, and allowing the controller to modify the Genmesh.
There are several different animation controllers already available in Crystal Space. These are:
This plugin allows to define sets of geometric transformations to be applied on the whole mesh, such as rotation, trnaslation, scaling. The transformations to be applied are defined in XML scripts.
This plugin allows to animate automatically a Genmesh depending on the motion and deformation made by a soft body that is physically simulated.
This plugin allows to animate the Genmesh based on the motion of a skeleton. This plugin has however became obsolete by the Animesh.
