Description

The Step Modulator is intended to control HALion's step modulator. It provides all necessary properties to be connected to the engine. Furthermore, there are properties for index, level, and level12 of the selected node and a snap option, which only affect the GUI and not the engine. These properties can be connected using UI parameters.

Properties

PropertyDescription
NameThe name of the Step Modulator.
Position/Size
Position and Size of the element in pixels.

Pos x, Pos y, Width, Height (Pos = Position of upper left corner)

Attach
  • Left: If the parent is resized, the control remains attached to left edge, with the specified ratio.
  • Right: If the parent is resized, the control moves relatively to the right edge, with the specified ratio.
  • Top: If the parent is resized, the control remains attached to top edge, with the specified ratio.
  • Bottom: If the parent is resized, the control moves relatively to the bottom edge, with the specified ratio.
  • Left + Right: If the parent is resized, the control is resized horizontally relatively to the left and right edges, with the specified ratio.
  • Top + Bottom: If the parent is resized, the control is resized vertically relatively to the top and bottom edges, with the specified ratio.
Tip
Text that appears as a tooltip when the mouse hovers over the element.
StepsThe number of steps. This property must be connected to the engine parameter "Steps" and further display controls.
SlopeThe Slope Mode. This property must be connected to the engine parameter "Slope" to show the slope. Connect additional controls, for example, a menu, to set the slope mode.
Slope Amnt This property must be connected to the engine parameter "SlopeAmount" to show the slope. Connect additional controls, for example, a knob, to set the slope.
Show AllActivate this option to show all steps with a fixed width. When dectivated, the width of the individual steps scales with the number of steps as set in "Steps", to fill the full size of the control.  
Advanced EditingActivate this option to provide additional editing possibillities. These are either available as context menu entries or as line editing functions using modifier keys (Shift, Alt). These editing functions were originally made to work best inside HALions Stepmodulator and Flexphraser. In case the control is used to control other custom script modules, where these functions are not needed or need to work differently, they can be deactivated. (Only available with HALion 6.4 and higher)
Step 1-32

The Step levels. This property can be connected to the engine stepmodulator parameters "Step1-32".

LengthIf the step modulator is used to control a custom script module, the "Length" parameter can be used to adjust the length of each step. (Only available with HALion 6.4 and higher)
EnableIf the step modulator is used to control a custom script module, the "Enable" parameter can be used to turn individual steps on and off. (Only available with HALion 6.4 and higher)


UI Variables

Create variables to connect the Step Modulator properties with the engine and further controls.

PropertyVariableDescriptionTypeRange
IndexindexThe index of the selected node.integer1 to 32
LevellevelLevel of the selected node.float-100 to 100
Level 12level12The level in fractions of 12 (used when "Snap" is active).float-12 to 12
SnapsnapActivates the snap line.integer0 to 1
