Command: mseries

mseries  model-spec  [ step  i ] [ pauseFrames  M ] [ loop  N ]

mseries slider  model-spec  [ step  i ] [ pauseFrames  M ] [ movieFramerate  N ]

The mseries command plays through an ordered set of models (a model series). The step option specifies including every ith model starting with the first (default 1, every model; 2 would give the first, third, fifth, etc.; 3 would give the first, fourth, seventh, etc.) The resulting models are indexed sequentially starting with 1. The pauseFrames option specifies the number of image frames per model (default 10). The loop option indicates repeating playback N times (default 1), wrapping directly from the last to the first.

The command mseries slider shows a graphical interface in which the slider can be dragged or a model index number entered directly. The interface also includes a play/pause button and another (marked with a red dot) for recording a movie. The step and pauseFrames options are the same as described above for the main mseries command. The movieFramerate option sets the playback rate of the resulting movie file (default 25 frames/s).
