Properties

<Avoid_Behavior>.brakePressure Float default: 2.0 -- animatable; float; Brake_Pressure

Determines how strongly the brakes are applied. Higher values induce more gradual and slower stops, but may cause brakes to "pump" in order to slow down.

<Avoid_Behavior>.detourAngle Float default: 360.0 -- animatable; float; Detour_Angle

Maximum necessary turning angle relative to the direction of delegate's goal that the delegate will steer to avoid rather than slow down and wait.

<Avoid_Behavior>.displayForce BooleanClass default: true -- boolean; Display_Force

When true, force exerted on the delegate(s) by the Avoid behavior is drawn in the viewports as a vector during the simulation solution.

<Avoid_Behavior>.forceColor Color default: (color 255 0 0) -- RGB color; Force_Color

Sets the color used to draw the Avoid force vector during the solution.

<Avoid_Behavior>.hardRadius Float default: 1.0 -- animatable; float; Hard_Radius

Distance from center of the delegate(s), where no penetration should occur.

<Avoid_Behavior>.lookAhead Integer default: 30 -- animatable; integer; Look_Ahead

The number of frames in advance of the current frame that the software looks for potential collisions.

<Avoid_Behavior>.name String default: "Avoid" -- string

The name of the behavior.

<Avoid_Behavior>.obstacles ArrayParameter default: #() -- node array; SubAnim

Any object or objects that the delegates must keep away from. See Notes below.

<Avoid_Behavior>.repelFalloff Float default: 3.0 -- animatable; float; Repel_Falloff

Higher values cause the repel to fall off to zero more rapidly with distance, thus focusing its effect closer to the delegate's hard radius.

<Avoid_Behavior>.repelRadius Float default: 3.0 -- animatable; float; Repel_Radius

Distance from hard radius of delegate where "repel" avoidance is sensed and carried out.

<Avoid_Behavior>.repelStrength Float default: 0.2 -- animatable; float; Repel_Strength

Determines the strength of the repelling force; higher values result in greater repulsion force.

<Avoid_Behavior>.showHardRadius BooleanClass default: false -- boolean; Show_Hard_Radius

Enables display of a wireframe sphere that depicts the extent of the .hardRadius setting.

<Avoid_Behavior>.showLookAhead BooleanClass default: false -- boolean; Show_Look_Ahead

When true, displays a sphere that shows the current distance used to check for potential collisions.

<Avoid_Behavior>.showPotentialCols BooleanClass default: false -- boolean; Show_Potential_Collisions

When true, displays a green line from the delegate to the location of a potential collision.

<Avoid_Behavior>.showRepelActivity BooleanClass default: false -- boolean; Show_Repel_Activity

When true, displays a white line between the delegate and target when the repel force is in effect.

<Avoid_Behavior>.showRepelRadius BooleanClass default: false -- boolean; Show_Repel_Radius

When true, displays a wireframe sphere that depicts the extent of the .repelRadius setting.

<Avoid_Behavior>.vfieldFalloff Float default: 8.0 -- animatable; float; Vector_Field_Falloff

Higher values cause vector field influence to fall off to zero more rapidly with distance, thus focusing its effect closer to the delegate's hard radius.

<Avoid_Behavior>.vfieldStrength Float default: 1.0 -- animatable; float; Vector_Field_Avoid_Strength

Higher values result in more severe influence. Delegates will be directed to move perpendicular to the field.

Notes

You can perform the following MAXScript operations

deleteitem <array> <itemnumber>

<array> = #(item,item...)

<array> = append <array> <item>

on all of the properties containing an ArrayParamater of objects listed below. You can also undo/redo these operations.

<Avoid_Behavior>.obstacles

The following MAXScript operations will cause Crowd to fail, either right away or later:

NEVER set a Crowd/Behavior ArrayParameter element to undefined.
