Week 9: Animating primitives of the same actor#

What did you do this week?#

  • Made two tutorials in this PR that show two approaches on how to animate primitives of the same FURY actor using the Timeline.

  • Tried sending all keyframes at once as uniforms, but I faced a performance issue doing this.

  • Set uniforms that are not being sent by VTK for the billboard actor.

What is coming up next week?#

  • Alter the Timeline to use matrices instead of setting values directly to allow hierarchical transformation.

  • Improve the API of the PartialActor to act almost like a normal actor.

Did you get stuck anywhere?#

I had some issues trying to get shader’s uniforms to hold their data, and solving this issue led to another issue, which was a performance issue.
