  • 1.  Text Animation via Scene Director upon Datalinq (xml) update

    Posted 03-06-2024 17:56

    I am hoping to animate old text off, and new text on when the value within an xml file (that is datalinq'd) is changed. For example, if we had a scorebug on-air and a team scores, have the 0 animate off, and the 1 animate on when the data for it changes in the xml.

    I have already built the scene directors to do the desired animations, but getting them to run (and run properly) when the data changes has eluded me.

    I have done some searching on this topic but haven't found the appropriate solution.

    Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You want to do data driven graphics. 

    You'll either need to use visual logic or I'd actually say scripting is easier for this.

    Have you scripted in XPression?

    I have done a little bit of scripting before. I tried to do some scripting for this using the OnSetText but it isn't giving me the results I am seeking.

    There's definitely a lot of this stuff on the forum. I'll find some links.
