instantreality 1.0

fully implemented
Structure type:


SphereSensor converts pointing device motion into a (1) spherical rotation about the origin of the local coordinate system, (2) translation on the viewing plane, (3) zoom along the viewing ray. Hint: Sensors are affected by peer nodes and children of peers.

id Name DataType PartType Default ValueType Description
SFVec3f translationOffset SFVec3f inputOutput 0 0 0 Sends event and remembers last translation value sensed.
SFRotation rotationOffset SFRotation inputOutput 0 0 1 0 Sends event and remembers last rotation value sensed.
SFMatrix4f matrixOffset SFMatrix4f inputOutput identity Sends event and remembers last transformation value sensed.
SFVec3f translation_changed SFVec3f outputOnly translation_changed events equal sum of relative translation change plus offset value.
SFRotation rotation_changed SFRotation outputOnly rotation_changed events equal sum of relative bearing changes plus offset value.
SFMatrix4f matrix_changed SFMatrix4f outputOnly Outputs rotation- and translation-changes in form of a transformation matrix.
SFBool autoOffset SFBool inputOutput TRUE Determines whether previous offset values are remembered/accumulated.
SFVec3f trackPoint_changed SFVec3f outputOnly trackPoint_changed events give intersection point of bearing with sensor's virtual geometry.
SFBool isOver SFBool outputOnly Is pointing device over sensor's geometry?
SFNode hitObject_changed SFNode outputOnly The next non-shared hit node's parent of type BoundedNode.
MFVec3f touchPoints_changed MFVec3f outputOnly Events containing all 3D points on surface of underlying geometry, given in Sensor's local coordinate system.
SFString triggerName SFString initializeOnly Timer Name of the dynamic context-slot, which is used by the run-time environment (e.g. Jobs) to trigger the node. Life-Nodes will automatically connect the context-eventOutput to the triggerSlot-eventInput Slot.
SFString description SFString inputOutput Text description to comment the sensor task. Can be used in run-time systems to give usefull feedback to the user and developer
SFBool enabled SFBool inputOutput TRUE Enables/disables the sensor node.
SFBool isActive SFBool outputOnly FALSE isActive true/false events are sent when the sensor gets active
SFTime triggerSlot SFTime inputOnly slot which is used internally to connect a dynamic context-slot which name is set by the triggerName value. Its used automatically to install run-time environment trigger.
MFString logFeature MFString inputOutput state, child, parent, route, eventIn, eventOut controls the logging of changes, state: log state changes (e.g. live), child: log child add/remove, parent: log parent add/remove, route: log route add/remove; eventIn: log receiving of events, eventOut: log sending of events: guiView, runtime system should create node-view, guiEdit: runtime system should create node-editeverything: log everything
SFNode metadata SFNode inputOutput MetadataObject container for payload metadata inside MetadataSet element
