We have a group now.

***************************

We are going to up the stakes, since Class #1 went better than I expected.

I modified what I planned for Class #2 a bit to cater to member interest, adding Impulse.


1 - Artiste MessageBoard  

    Line Display
    Board Clear
    Hide
    Show
    FadeHide
    FadeShow



2 - Trainer Archives 

3-  Delay - (D)

4 - Attach/Detach - (ATT,DET)  (hat/cane) ==>



5 - Animate Mesh - (A)



6 - Raise/Lower - (RL)



7 - Collision Theory


8 - Impulse (thrower lite) - (IMP)






The 1st 6 items (1 thru 6) should go pretty quick.  If they do then the reward will be that we will START impulse. (IMP)


For Impulse, you should have 3 items.  Each one rotates on a different axis.  

Arrow - (roll)  - I will give you a Full Perm red arrow to use made by Eric Linden

Tomahawk (pitch) - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/CRAnQ-Mesh-Tactical-Tomahawk/11287833   (this one is only 1 L) - its the one i use but feel free to buy any other one that is COPY/MOD

This tomahawk is FREE ==> https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/tlc-subweapons/5787049

Boomerang - (yaw) - I use this shuriken, with credit to SararRho, -- https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/COD-Shuriken-Throwing-Blade-Full-Perm-Weapon/12521558 -- it is 10 L

OR a cheaper boomerang

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Burled-Oak-Boomerang/21753216
(5 L)



Target - I will supply you each a target.





For Attach/Detach, I will provide a
full-perm hat and full-perm cane but feel free to use anything else in their place.

Artiste StoryTeller`

 



                                        







Artiste proudly presents a new suite of tools called StoryTeller.

The purpose of StoryTeller is to offer dance newbies a chance to more easily emulate features that affect object-behavior, object-appearance, and object-avatar interaction as performed by seasoned choreographers without having to:

1 - ask advanced choreographers for help, or 

2 - find an existing script on Marketplace, or 

3 - find a friend who scripts to create a specific script for you, or 

4 - get someone to modify an existing script for you.

It is one stop-shopping.  Multiple features in one place. Learn one syntax. One channel.

Here is a link to a 17-minute abbreviated demo video overview of most of the features: 

StoryTeller Demo Video


OR






What you get  in the box: The following 4 tools:

***************

 

1Artiste Async - At the heart of StoryTeller are 2 scripts and 1 notecard.  We call this box Artiste Async. Drop the scripts and notecard in the object you want to control. Then send commands to it. Send from a command-scheduler or from a pre-assigned button or type command in local chat

The other 3 tools you get are NOT required but make developing with your Async SOOOO MUCH EASIER.


***************

2 - Artiste Async Trainer - sends commands to the StoryTeller script(s)


***************





3 - Artiste Relay - used for a couple of RLV-related special commands for 


***************



4 - Artiste MessageBoard - used to display command syntax as well as optionally inform audience of key story information.


***************

Advantages

2 - Learn one general syntax format.

3 - Commands have their own independent time-line.

4 - All commands work on a single customizable channel.

5 - Working command-lines can be saved and recalled with menu button.

6 - Many commands can effect a single link

7 - Movers not needed for object movement.

8 - Online Reference Manual.

9 - Sample Videos.

10 - Classroom Instruction.

11 - One-on-One help is available.

12 - Free Updates.

13 - Pre-Purchase Q&A Sessions offered.
