The DataAnim plug-in animates a value and sends the data of this value, every field, to the DataField that is defined in the Output Field Name. This plug-in is different from other DataPool plug-ins since it is not triggered by a change of a DataField. It is activated from the animation director it is located in, and plays a predefined animation. This plug-in acts as a data generator for the specified output DataField.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Plugins -> Container plug-ins -> Data

Information: DataPool plug-ins only work properly on a single channel on the same machine.

DataAnim Properties

  • Output Field Name: Defines the name of the DataField that receives the animated value of the Value parameter every video field.

  • Animation Type: Defines the type of value that is sent to the Output Field Name. Value types are integer or float.

  • Value: Generates and sends the data (the animated parameter of the plug-in) to the DataField defined in Output Field Name.


Define the Output Filed Name as AAA, and create an animation of the Value parameter from 0 to 10. When running the animation, AAA is changed every field as the animation progresses from 0 to 10. All DataPool plug-ins registered to the DataField AAA is then triggered every field and set to the current value of the Value parameter.
