(Posting this as a separate assignment instead of a single gauntlet post)
For my ofPrep assignment I chose to combine ofxTimeline and ofxAssimpModelLoader, which turned out to be harder than I thought – particularly because ofxTimeline is somewhat old now yet fills a gap and I figured it would be useful to setup.
To actually setup ofxTimeline in of 0.9.0: https://github.com/YCAMInterlab/ofxTimeline
- You need to make sure you add all the addons on the github README page (there’s a bunch!) – but the audio component is outdated so we need to remove any references to that.
- Then I commented out all of the files within addons/ofxAudioDecoder. If you delete them you might run into referencing errors.
- Then, I had to comment out all of the sections in ofxTimeline that surfaced errors related to audio.
Since the goal was to simply get the app running, I loaded an obj model and made it rotate around an empty space.
I obtained the model of nyc through a hack where I downloaded the 3D data through Bing Maps 3D using Max 3DS.
