19# basic-2: Time management : a rotating 3D model
20
21# This lesson is the same as basic-1.py, except that the model rotates.
22
23# You'll learn about time management and rotation.
24
25# Basic Soya's rotation functions are :
26#
27# rotate_lateral  : rotates around the Y axis (=in the horizontal plane)
28# rotate_vertical : rotates around the X axis
29# rotate_incline  : rotates around the Z axis
30
31
32# Imports and inits Soya (see lesson basic-1.py).
33
34import sys, os, os.path, soya
35
36soya.init()
37soya.path.append(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(sys.argv[0]), "data"))
38
39# Creates the scene.

45sword_model = soya.Shape.get("sword")
46
47
48# Create a class of rotating volume. Soya if fully Object Oriented, and almost all
49# Soya classes can be extended.
50# Here, our class inherits from soya.Volume, and so can display a model.
51
52class RotatingVolume(soya.Volume):
53
54  # The advance_time method is called repeatedly by the Idler, for all object in the scene.
55  # In Soya, the time unit is the "round" ; one round is 30 milliseconds (default value).
56  # The proportion argument of advance_time is the proportion of a round that has occured:
57  # e.g. 0.3 means that 30% of a round has occured since last call, i.e. 9 milliseconds.
58
59  # advance_time should be limited to animation code, and not decision code.  We'll see
60  # another method for decision stuff in basic-3.py.
61
63
64    # Calls the super implementation of advance_time. This IS NEEDED, as some Soya object
66
68
69    # Rotates the object around Y axis. The angle is proportional to proportion because
70    # the more time has been spent, the more we want to rotate, in order to achieve a
71    # smooth animation.
72
73    # Almost every rotations or moves that occurs in advance_time should be proportional
74    # to proportion.
