This module provides a way to animate all the various configurations of a light. This animation will be synchronized with the server so that all players should see the same animation states. A simple example for this would be for creating a simple Light House where the light’s direction would animate all the way around a 180° rotation. The configuration window for Active Lights can be opened from the Light Animation tab in any Ambient Light config window.

Animation Functions

The way animations work is that at time T, the position along the transition is at a deterministic position along a mathematical curve. This is some really fancy talk for basically making a dot follow a line.

Take this animation for example:

Given a Linear animation, the following are the results over time:

0s 0.25s 0.5s 0.75s 1s
0 ft 10 ft 20 ft 30 ft 40 ft

The same key frames but with an Elliptic Animation would have these results:

0s 0.25s 0.5s 0.75s 1s
0 ft 15.31 ft 28.28 ft 36.96 ft 40 ft

Here are all of the animation functions that are available, along with a graph for each.
