recorder display

Post by sghanaatpishe » Fri May 29, 2015 3:02 am

Dear all
I like to know better about "recorder display" :
recorder display $windowTitle $xLoc $yLoc $xPixels $yPixels <-file $fileName>
This command is not enough, in one of "OpenSees wiki" examples, there are four line below that command :

prp 0 100 0
vup 0 1 0
vpn 0 -1 0
display 1 3 10

What are their aim?
Thank you

to set up the viewing system .. the display option is not documented and not supported which is why tey are not there .. a book on 3d rendering could explain more .. vip is view up vector, vpn is view plane normal, prp is point on reference plane

Hi,
i am trying to model infill wall in opensees, as an aid i am using the infill example provided for n bay n storey frame.....the problem is when i input the display command provided with the example for my frame i get quiet a weird figure for my frame due to which i am unable to understand if i have placed the infill correctly or not.....so do i have to change something in the source code provided for display for my 1 bay 1 storey rc frame? also does the display show me frame after analysis or at what stage???
i am using this file as an aid.....(http://opensees.berkeley.edu/wiki/index ... nt_Removal)

codes for display are DisplayModel3D_IR.tcl and DisplayPlane_IR.tcl provided on the same page of the link above.....
your guidance will be highly appreciated! :)

Screen recording can be useful when you need to record a how-to video to help someone learn how to use a program, record a game walkthrough, or prepare for a presentation. Record here means you can create a video of whatever you are doing on your desktop, save the recording as a video file and send it to a friend or upload it on YouTube.

I just knew these Display features are available 'ad interim' therefore not documented! Anyway apparently the settings are taken from:

https://www.cs.uic.edu/~jbell/CourseNot ... oints.html

I also struggled to understand how to display top, side, or '3D' views, see below

recorder display "Displaced frame" 20 20 800 800 -wipe
prp 300 200 1
# '3D view'
vup 1 1 1
vpn -0.75 -0.75 0.25
# or side view from X
vup 0 0 1
vpn -1 0 0
# or side view from Y
# vup 0 0 1
# vpn 0 -1 0
# or Top view (from Z)
# vup 0 1 0
# vpn 0 0 1
