FadeEasy

Introduction

FadeEasy makes object fading easier for you to make an object fade in or out simply by entering a one line code.
Example: llFade(LINK_SET, 0.0, 1.0, ALL_SIDES, 0.05); Or llFade(LINK_SET, 1.0, 0.0, ALL_SIDES, 0.05);


Usage

Function: llFade(integer linknumber, float AlphaStart, float AlphaEnd, integer faces, float speed);
integer linknumber – Link number (0: unlinked, 1: root prim, >1: child prims) or a LINK_* flag
float AlphaStart – from 0.0 (clear) to 1.0 (solid), This is the starting opacity of your object
float AlphaEnd – from 0.0 (clear) to 1.0 (solid), This is the ending opacity of your object
integer faces - LINK_THIS, LINK_ROOT, LINK_SET, LINK_ALL_OTHERS, LINK_ALL_CHILDREN
float speed - How much opacity to gain or decrease by


Function Code

// Leave this part alone!
llFade(integer linknumber, float AlphaStart, float AlphaEnd, integer faces, float speed)
{
    if(AlphaStart<AlphaEnd)
    {
        for(;AlphaStart<AlphaEnd;)
        {
            AlphaStart+=speed;
            llSetLinkAlpha(linknumber, AlphaStart, faces);
        }
        return;
    }
    else if(AlphaStart>AlphaEnd)
    {
        for(;AlphaStart>AlphaEnd;)
        {
            AlphaStart-=speed;
            llSetLinkAlpha(linknumber, AlphaStart, faces);
        }
        return;
    }
}
