I have seen that making robots with spinning gyron in all directions and make boat move back and forth can become over-complicated. Because iClone base your keys by frames you need to manually calc the fps and apply each key with the value you want.

So this is a plugin that do basic rotation, move and scale changes/animations based on units per second instead. You can move the boat, stop it, and then move it again from the previous key in the timeline and it will maintain the speed you have set:

Ex here is a half-circle that I apply 45 degrees every second. If i want to change it to 180 degrees every second. I can just delete the old keys, change the value and apply the new keys to the timeline.

You can test individual transformers and fine tune each one. And then apply all at once:

You can also make the change loop/patrol. Ex if your value is 0 at start and you apply 180 units per second and loop every 10 unit. You will make the object animate to 10 and then it will reverse back to 0, to 10, back to 0... in 180 units per second. If you have the same name for some objects, the same animation will be applied on all objects with that name. This will allow you to apply basic object animations on complex structures.

The tail and head is moving too, along with the rest:

You can save the time transformer tree and load it to change your objects when you need. Or apply it in another project. Note that it is object name based. So your objects need to have the same name in the other project.

Slightly improved version. Added so it will auto play the keys that was generated. You can also play it again. Also added some more control to only delete the keys you added and keep the old keys:

Any-key,

This looks good.  Are your .py scripts available to download, and if so, where?

Thanks!

Glad you are interested.
I plan to sell them on itch.io in Q2 after the plugin design contest. This will give me time to create tutorials and test the plugins to fins bugs. I also plan to sell them in RL marketplace when it come online in Q4. Will inform when this happens. Got a subscribe list here: https://mailchi.mp/21e02cb6fb48/takicp

This looks great!  How about adding a Wiggle operator (like After Effects has) to add random motion to a scene?  I'd find that very handy.  If you're not familiar with After Effects' wiggle expression here's how it works https://youtu.be/i_RnkwFu0Hc

Thanks and keep up the good work!
