Properties

Note:

Some of the properties can be entered using more than one syntax. They are listed together in the following list. Either syntax can be used, they are connected.

<RingWave>.'max diameter'     Float default: 500.0 -- animatable; alias: radius

The outside radius of the ringwave.

<RingWave>.'Radius Segs'      Integer default: 1 -- animatable; alias: radial_Segments

The segment count between the inner and outer surfaces in the direction of radius.

<RingWave>.'ring width'      Float default: 1.0 -- animatable; alias: Ring_Width

The mean ring width as measured inward from the outer radius.

<RingWave>.'ring segments'     Integer default: 200 -- animatable; alias: sides

The number of segments in the circumferential direction for both the inner, outer, and end (cap) surfaces.

<RingWave>.height Float default: 0.0 -- animatable

The height of the ringwave along its major axis.

<RingWave>.'Height Segs'      Integer default: 1 -- animatable; alias: Height_Segments

The number of segments in the direction of the height.

<RingWave>.Repeat Integer default: 2 -- animatable

Repeat = 0 - Cyclic Growth; 1 - Grow and Stay; 2 - No Growth

<RingWave>.'time on'       Integer default: 0 -- animatable; alias: Start_Time

The time after .'time on' that the ringwave takes to reach full size.

<RingWave>.'display until'     Integer default: 16000 -- animatable; alias: End_Time

The time after which the ringwave disappears.

<RingWave>.'Outer Edge Breakup'   Boolean default: false -- alias: Outer_Edge_Breakup

Turns on breakup of the outer edge.

<RingWave>.'Major Cycles Outer'   Integer default: 1   -- alias: Outer_Edge_Major_Cycles

The number of major waves around the outer edge.

<RingWave>.'Major Cycle Flux Outer' Float default: 0.0  -- animatable; alias: Outer_Edge_Major_Flux

The size of the major waves, expressed as a percentage of the unmodulated width.

<RingWave>.'Major Cycle Flux Per Outer' Integer default: 16000 -- animatable; alias: Outer_Edge_Major_Crawl_Time

The time each major wave takes to move around the outer circumference of the RingWave.

<RingWave>.'Minor Cycles Outer'   Integer default: 1   -- alias: Outer_Edge_Minor_Cycles

The number of random-sized smaller waves in each major cycle.

<RingWave>.'Minor Cycle Flux Outer' Float default: 0.0 -- animatable; alias: Outer_Edge_Minor_Flux

The average size of the smaller waves, expressed as a percentage of the unmodulated width.

<RingWave>.'Minor Cycle Flux Per Outer' Integer default: -16000 -- animatable; alias: Outer_Edge_Minor_Crawl_Time

The time each minor wave takes to move across its respective major wave.

<RingWave>.'Inner Edge Breakup'   Boolean default: true  -- alias: Inner_Edge_Breakup

Turns on the breakup of the inner edge.

<RingWave>.'Major Cycles Inner'   Integer default: 11  -- alias: Inner_Edge_Major_Cycles

The number of major waves around the inner edge.

<RingWave>.'Major Cycle Flux Inner' Float default: 25.0 -- animatable; alias: Inner_Edge_Major_Flux

<RingWave>.'Major Cycle Flux Per Inner' Integer default: 19360 -- animatable; alias: Inner_Edge_Major_Crawl_Time

The time each major wave takes to move around the inner circumference of the RingWave.

<RingWave>.'Minor Cycles Inner'   Integer default: 29  -- alias: Inner_Edge_Minor_Cycles

The average size of the smaller waves, expressed as a percentage of the unmodulated width.

<RingWave>.'Minor Cycle Flux Inner' Float default: 10.0 -- animatable; alias: Inner_Edge_Minor_Flux

<RingWave>.'Mapping Coords'     Boolean default: false

When on, assigns mapping coordinates to the ringwave.

<RingWave>.Smoothing       Boolean default: false

When on, smooths the surface of the ringwave.
