Interface PolylineEmitter

All Superinterfaces:
X3DNode, X3DParticleEmitterNode
All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface PolylineEmitter extends X3DParticleEmitterNode
PolylineEmitter emits particles along a single polyline.

Warning: this is an abstract interface that cannot be instantiated as a concrete object. Java programmers typically only need to use concrete objects provided by the org.web3d.x3d.jsail classes. PolylineEmitter node tooltip: (X3D version 3.2 or later) [X3DParticleEmitterNode] PolylineEmitter emits particles along a single polyline. The coordinates for the line along which particles should be randomly generated are taken from a combination of the coord and coordIndex fields. The starting point for generating particles is randomly distributed along this line and given the initial speed and direction.
  • Hint: if no coordinates are available, PolylineEmitter acts like a point source located at local origin.

Package hint: This interface is defined by the X3D Java Language Binding Specification for the Scene Authoring Interface (SAI).
