Animated Roof Tiles
« on: December 22, 2020, 10:24:02 AM »
trying to achieve a self building roof, where each tile flies in and lands in sequence row by row. Or maybe it flips in as it scales from 0 -100%. The roof section has around 3000 tiles which are a custom model. I've looked at the roof tiling scripts in the library, but it's not obvious to me how to change the tile. Is this kind of animation even possible in Railclone?

Well, macros within these Tiles styles are using the Extend X/Y Size to Area feature and in case you want to animate it "row by row" you can use a X Spline & Y Size set-up instead - if needed together with the Clipping Area (but having the mentioned Extend X/Y Size to Area feature disabled). Please feel free to check the attached sample scene showing a possible style set-up for these purposes. I hope you'll find it useful.

Best regards,
