I need your advice for a task that seems to be tricky.
Is there any good method -with the help of some clever expression(no Timer object events)- to control animation frames gradually in multiple stages?
(frames = animation frames)
on command/key press: jump to another frame from any frame → +/- x amount of frames, | I use this example now: current/starting frame 80, jump instantly to frame 60(x amount is -20):
Now... frame 60 is the starting point for the multi-staged time based anim frame increase/decrease(consistent frame change time):
+40 frames(=frame 100, stage 1) → -30 frames(=frame 70, stage 2) → +10 frames(=frame 80, stage 3 - complete)
- jump to which frame(x amount +/-) → depending on current frame number
- gradually subtracted/or+ frames for every new stage
- overall frame change time interval/or adjustable for each stage
- adjustable countdown values which control when frames will begin to change gradually(after the initial frame jump and between stages)
