Tips & Techniques 4 Visible and Invisible Objects. Alice. Opacity. Opacity is a measure of how "see-through" an image or an object is. The less opaque an object is, the more see-through it is. Opacity of 100%, cannot see through the object

opacity
Opacity
  • Opacity is a measure of how "see-through" an image or an object is.
    • The less opaque an object is, the more see-through it is.
      • Opacity of 100%, cannot see through the object
      • Opacity of 0%, object is transparent (like clear glass)
  • In Alice, an object with an opacity of 0% is invisible.
changing the opacity
Changing the Opacity
  • A change in opacity can be used to simulate real world conditions.
  • Example
    • A fish swimming away from the camera should fade away because water blurs our vision of distant objects.
slide4
Demo
  • Ch04Lec4LilfishOpacity
  • Concepts illustrated in this example
    • As opacity is gradually decreased, the fish becomes less visible.
    • At an opacity of 0%, the object is still in the world (can still see it listed in the object tree) but is effectively invisible.
isshowing
isShowing
  • The isShowing property has a Boolean value, either true or false.
    • Setting an object's isShowing property to false makes the object invisible in the world.
    • Once again, the object is not removed from the world, it is simply not visible in the world.
slide6
Demo
  • Ch04Lec4ChickenIsShowing
  • Concepts illustrated in this example
    • A billboard can be used to display a title screen for the animation.
    • A 2-second wait gives the user time to read the billboard.
    • Changing the isShowing property to false makes the title screen disappear.
two properties
Two properties
  • isShowing and opacity are two different properties.
    • isShowing works like an on/off switch
    • opacity works like a dimmer switch
  • Although each can be used to make an object invisible, changing one does not automatically change the value of the other!
practical uses of invisible objects
Practical Uses of Invisible Objects
  • An invisible object is sometimes useful as a stationary marker that creates
    • a target for a move to instruction
    • an external reference point for object rotational motion
demos
Demos
  • Ch04Lec4InvisibleTarget
    • Invisible circle makes it possible to move the object to a landing target.
  • Ch04Lec4InvisibleReferencePoint
    • External reference point acts as a pivot for the rotational movement of each object.
