View Full Version : importing numbers from text files

11-06-2003, 05:29 PM

I am setting up a visualisation of a rocket's trajectory based on telemetry data from the flight. I have acess to both motion and rotation around all axes stored in text files. my question is if it is a way to import that data into the graph editor in lightwave, it sure would make this project a lot simpler, as I have one measurement per second for 600 seconds.

I would fiddle with a motion file - even if there's loads of data that's a bit odd, you can experiment by making one and then altering things to see how the file changes. It's always a lot easier to edit a text file than do it in LightWave, keyframe by keyframe... (and it kind of reminds me of using Videoscape too! :)

Or ask someone in the LScript forum to make you a script (should be pretty simple)

thanks for the tips guys, I think I'll try the motion file approach before I ask someone to make me a script
