Not a fan of the autoposition, but I had to tackle it for the drink robot because unlike servo recorder, I needed the robot to precisely grab a cup and repeat positions over and over. Which he does.
First of all I have read every "?" by every button and slider and I still dont get most of whats happening.
My issue is understanding the redundancy of different speeds and steps in all the windows and how that affects the servos in each one. Of the three windows I understand "Frames" window the best as this is where you begin and can see the effects on the servos.
But as I move on to the "Actions" tab I am again shown delay and steps and now speed. The speed here goes from -1 to 20. I understand I can change this for each frame, but after I set the motions and then decide to go back and edit the speed button on the right, there is no noticeable speed change to my animation ( i also understand that the higher the number the slower the motion)
Finally, when actions are set up and you go to the main window for Auto Position I am again presented with another STEP and SPEED, this time the speed goes to 0-50. Why?
Yesterday I broke part of the drink robot because I am struggling with this animation system. Its ok if you are playing with a toy sized robot, but when programming a lifesized robot, things can go expensively wrong, when disaster strikes or worse someone gets hurt.
Please take the time to explain to me how this redundancy is supposed to work.
