Record path#

The Record path animation records atoms trajectories along the presentation as a path. It adds a track that records atoms trajectories, and use the Inspector to add the corresponding Path node in the document.

Adding the animation#

Double-click on the Record path animation effect in the Animation panel of the Animator. The keyframe will be placed at the current frame, move it if needed.

The track colors indicate whether positions have been recorded: at a given frame, a green segment indicates that positions have been recorded, while a red segment indicates that positions have not yet been recorded or have become invalid.


The Animator executes animations from the top down, so place the Record path animation after the ones that you want to record.


You can always move the keyframes of the animation.
