Introducing the Artiste Gear

Gears


This device was created to extend the abilities of a normal Artiste Rotator.
It is FREE to current and future owners of the Artiste Performer Series.
It allows for segmented moves comparable to that of watch-movements with configurable intervals and movement slices around a circle.
It also provides for inter-dependent movement triggering.
Gears can of course can be stopped, started, paused, and resumed via AutoFX.  This allows for coordinated stopping of say tires on a car when the car stops or a slowing down of the rotation as the car slows. It could allow for those ‘rims that keep spinning’ to continue on after a car stops. Graduated moments can be pronounced enough to add drama to a backwards countdown.. Can create a stopwatch. Can show impending doom and doom-avoidance with simulated ‘gauge’ movements. You could create a different time setup for an alien world where there are 3 hours to the day, 10 minutes in and hour and 30 seconds to a minute...for example.
There is a “prime” function that pre-syncs the gears so they can all resume at the same time in sync from whence they left off.
It deprecates the:
 RotationStopEvery,0.0
 RotationStopFor,0.0in the Palette
Each gear contains 1 script and one notecard.
Gears can also be Palettized for additional functionality.
Each gear's direction is configurable.
Configurable channel-to-channel communications.
They are copy/mod.
You can add custom textures.
You can re-size them.
They can rotate independent or inter-dependent of each other.
