Second, we must set up our INTAN Notecard to place the dancers and set the playing of the sequence. The note 'Maximizing Your INTAN' describes the INTAN notecards and how to set them up.
Here is the entry that I made for the sequence for my INTAN notecard:
Let's examine the parts of the sequence.
- couple defines the line for the INTAN as a couples dance
- Body Rubber is the couples dance name
- The male sequence is next with the individual dances followed by the time for running each dance. The separator is a comma.
- Following the semi-colon (;) is the z-position of the male dancer relative to the rezzed male pose ball. Usually this is 0.
- The female sequence is next and is identical to the male sequence.
- Following the female sequence are four numbers that place the female relative to the male. For this example, I placed the female one meter to the right of the male and facing the same direction. The four numbers are 1,0,0,2. The 1 refers to the x coordinate and the 2 is equivalent to a rotation of 180 degrees so the female faces the same direction as the male.
- I added the term Sync so I could use the INTAN sorting capabilities to find the dance.
DANCING THE SEQUENCE
Hey, the fun part. Just find the sequence using your INTAN Dance Ball or HUD. I like to use the sorting capability of the INTAN, since I have so many dances in it. Click on the dance and you and your partner are dancing side-by-side the dance sequence.
POSITIONING THE DANCERS
If you want to place the dancers facing each other or in another position relative to each other, you only need to change the four numbers following the female dances. In the above example, we used 1,0,0,2. This places the female 1 meter to the right of the male and facing the same direction. Here are some other options:
This places the female one meter to the left facing the same direction as the male
This places the female one meter in front facing the same direction as the male
This places the female one meter in front facing the opposite direction of the male
