Using vector animations ?

Post by p-OS »

Hollywood 9 doc states that LoadAnim supports vector based animations if an appropiate plugin is installed.

I wonder which plugins I need to use (vectorgraphics plugin ?) and which vector anim file formats are supported ?

Could not find any information in the documentation.

Currently there is no plugin that supports real vector animation formats but the Polybios plugin makes PDF pages available as vector animations. So you could try this to see how it works. See this history entry for Polybios 1.3:

Code: Select all

- New: When loading PDFs as animations using @ANIM or LoadAnim(), Polybios will create vector animations
  now if a Hollywood version that supports vector animations is installed; if you don't want that, pass
  TRUE in the new "NoVectorAnim" tag to @REQUIRE

I read that when I last updated Polybios, but considered that mainly as a possibilty for PFD Viewer, not as a Workaround for loading vector brushes for map tiles.
