    Default Play Animation

    Is there a way of using the 3D behaviour "Play Animation" to function using
    keyboard keys rather than mouse clicks on 3d objects (what can be added or
    swapped to make it do so).
    I have looked into using the chrome behaviour version of "Play Animation"
    which allows keyboard key activation which has the advantage of specifying
    start and end to the millisecond but doesn't allow for making other animation
    states to be "stopped".
    The 3D behaviour "Play Animation" allows for the choice to make other
    animations "stopped" but not the use of keyboard elements to activate.

    What I am trying to achieve is to separately activate around 14 animations of
    14 separate 3d objects within the w3d using keyboard buttons including arrows
    and letters
    Would be grateful for any help or direction

    Hi moltoquesto,

    If you download the Chrome Behaviors, think tehre is a keyboard activation for
    Play Animation. You can find it at:
    http://www.chromelib.com/

    Otherwise, writing your own script for this is not too complex using:
    myModel = member(3DmemberName).model("modelName")
    myModel.keyframePlayer.playing = 1
    = 1 is playing, = 0 is paused.
    (that's if it is a keyFrame animation)

    Hope teh above helps.

    And, I'm telling all in the Director community the following:
    To remind everyone of my own Director effort, if you that havenít visited my
    Director Survey, please do so ASAP. I plan to close the survey in the next few
    days.

    Many thanks Dean, I have taken the survey by way of thanking you for your reply.
    It is keyframe and I have purchased Chrome behaviours 4 but I understand your
    answer I shall attempt to write my own script (I rarely do as I am still a
    beginner, I have managed to adapt certain behaviours in the past, this will be
    a new challenge)
