Side-by-Side Animation Example
There was a recent request in from a user:
I have two models, and I have post processed them the same. I have similar animations from each result. What I’d really like to do, is to paste the animations in a side-by-side mode so that there is a new single combined animation which show the two results side by side. This the best way of comparing two or more animations.
Now, in most video editors, you only paste front-to-back. Well, not EnVe. You can paste side by side, or top/bottom, or diagonal, etc.
The example zip file (download), contains an example of this capability:
Case1.avi — animation which is 826×574 pixels, with 30 frames —> will become the lower left image
Case2.avi — animation which is 826×574 pixels, with 30 frames —> will become the lower right image.
Open up EnVe, and drag this case_combine.mtm file into the main EnVe window. You can then write out a new animation, which will be a side by side comparison. Case12.avi is an example output from that.
Nice and easy? Not something that many other programs can do, particularly in the engineering sector.
