iOS and physics engine

Post by tomwoo » Mon Feb 21, 2011 3:27 pm

Hello All, (this is a repost of a reply to ctflat on the iOS thread)

As far as iOS physics engines, I heard of (but never used) Cocos2D/Box2D and Chipmunk. May be calling these libraries as externals provides the resources needed.
Sorry I can't offer further advices, I'm just getting started with LiveCode and AE4.
May be Malte can pull it out from his hat, and add the hooks to AE4?

Regards,

Tom

I would like some examples showing how to use callbacks as I do not really understand how to use them.
I would also like to see more examples using the different functions and commands. The more different ideas the better to show how animationengine can be used. I have upgraded twice and have the latest version but I feel that I could use it much more than I do at present, My limitation is usually in understanding how to use the different commands and what it can do.

That sounds like a plan. I will take some time to set this up, however it should not be too long for the first few tuts now...

Hi Malte,
For my use I have translate in French your Animation Engine 5 manual.
I can send it to you (PDF), if some French people need a thing like that...
I brought a small improvement compared to the English version : I stamped a number for each AE command or function...
Bon souvenir de Paris

hi Malte

I wanted to start using Animation Engine (particularly for the ability to add 'easing to animation' and wondered if you could point me in the direction of any tutorials.

Cheers

Steve (biffoire)

Hi Steve,

the PDf that comes with AE has a few examples on usage. The command you will be looking for is aeMoveTo. Also the easing functions might come handy. If you need pointers feel free to ask and I will whip up a stack or two. Should be doing that anyways :-)

Cheers,

Malte

When I first looked at the pdf it didn't make sense but now I see it along side the collision example, I can see how it works.

Perfect.

Cheers and thanks for such a quick response. :)

Hi

I am trying to Scroll in a field in iOS using AE. (iPhoneCommands are causing crashes!) I have tried the aeScroll commands but in vain. Could you please give me a tutorial on these.
Thanks

Hi Martin,

do you want to use a native scroller?

All the best,

Malte

I could use that too but I tried the examples with AZ scroll and revmobGUI and all were not working. Maybe for me. I thought I would try aescroll with AE.

Hi,

the aeScroll messages only work for liveCode fields / Scrollbars.
Adding the native scroller object should be trivial. I look at adding this for the next release.


Cheers,

malte
