Collision detection?
on Nov 28, 2007 at 11:35:50 pm

Hi all:

Does anyone know if one can do actual collision detection (not just edge detection) between different objects in Motion? Inspired by that tutorial about creating a Pong game, I tried today to create an Arkanoid animation, just for kicks, and I found out that I needed 2 things:

-Actual collision detection between, say, the ball and the bricks.
-A way for an object to detect events (like a collision) and trigger parameter changes from there. Example: a brick that detects the ball colliding and sets its opacity to 0.

Not a big deal. I was just curious about whether this was possible at all.


Paulo.

Howdy,

You can fake the collision with repel behaviors, but there is no event/trigger system in Motion.

Hello,

I know it's not really what you're after but this could be done very easily in Flash then exported as a quicktime movie file.

Just a thought.

Never thought of using Flash but you can do pixel detection in After Effects with huge scripting and expressions.
So, use Flash. Which means: Hire a Flash animator!
