Keyframe hierarchical Animation#

Creating hierarchical keyframes animation in fury

import numpy as np
from fury import actor, window
from fury.animation import Animation

scene = window.Scene()

showm = window.ShowManager(scene,
                           size=(900, 768), reset_camera=False,
                           order_transparent=True)
showm.initialize()

Creating the road

road = actor.box(np.array([[0, 0, 0]]), colors=np.array([[1, 1, 1]]),
                 scales=np.array([[22, 0.1, 5]]))

Constructing the car geometry

body_actor = actor.box(np.array([[0, 0.5, 0], [-0.2, 1, 0]]),
                       scales=((4, 1, 2), (2.5, 1.5, 1.8)),
                       colors=(0.6, 0.3, 0.1))

Adding the the car’s body to an Animation to be able to animate it later.

car_anim = Animation(body_actor)

Creating the wheels of the car

wheel_center = np.array([[0, 0, 0]])

wheel_direction = np.array([[0, 0, 1]])
wheel_positions = [
    [1.2, 0, 1.1],
    [-1.2, 0, 1.1],
    [1.2, 0, -1.1],
    [-1.2, 0, -1.1],

]

wheels = [actor.cylinder(wheel_center, wheel_direction, (0.1, 0.7, 0.3),
                         radius=1.7, heights=0.3, resolution=10, capped=True)
          for _ in range(4)]

Animating each wheel and setting its position to the right position using a single keyframe that will not change.

Creating a radar on top of the car

First we create the shaft holding and rotating the radar

radar_shaft = actor.cylinder(np.array([[0, 0, 0]]), np.array([[0, 1, 0]]),
                             (0, 1, 0), heights=1)

In order to animate the shaft actor we have to add it to an Animation

radar_shaft_anim = Animation(radar_shaft)

Setting a single position keyframe will make sure the actor will be placed at that position

Rotating the shaft around Y axis

radar_shaft_anim.set_rotation(0.0, [0, -250, 0])
radar_shaft_anim.set_rotation(1.0, [0, 250, 0])
radar_shaft_anim.set_rotation(2.0, [0, -250, 0])

Now we create the radar itself

radar = actor.cone(np.array([[0, 0, 0]]), directions=(0, 0, 0),
                   colors=(0.2, 0.2, 0.9))

Then add it to an animation in order to rotate it

Set position and rotation as done above with the shaft.

Now, we want the radar to rotate when the shaft rotates in hierarchical way. To do that we must add the radar animation as a child animation of the shaft animation as below:

After that we want everything to animate related to the car. The wheels should always be attached to the car no matter where it moves. we do that by adding them as child animations of the car’s body animation

Moving the car

car_anim.set_position(0.0, [-10, 0.5, 0])
car_anim.set_position(6.0, [10, 0.5, 0])

Adding the car Animation to the show manager

showm.add_animation(car_anim)
scene.add(road)
scene.camera().SetPosition(0, 20, 30)

interactive = False

if interactive:
    showm.start()

window.record(scene, out_path='viz_keyframe_hierarchical_animation.png',
              size=(900, 768))
viz hierarchical animation
