For example i have an animation of a moving box on blender and i just wanted control the speed of the moving box using Ros subscriber and publisher, like one blender window as publisher and another blender window as subscriber,so that i can see the change in velocity on the subscriber blender window? thanks!

Update: Thanks allenh1 for the response!! I know a little bit about MORSE. what i am looking for is to check weather there is a way that i can run blender as two different nodes in ROS ,using rosrun? or if am not mistaken is there a way to have ROS Package for blender? am sorry if am confusing,am not an expert in this area, please your help,thanks a lot!!!

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking for here... There is some blender implementation out there, though. Look into a project called MORSE. It has lots of ROS tools with it, and has relatively good documentation.

I'm not seeing why you need two blender windows... You can have a program act as both a publisher and subscriber. I am still not exactly sure what you want to do here... Could you please state explicitly what each blender window would do?


Window 1:

  • Things happen

Window 2:

  • Different things happen

Am not sure it is logical or not , but what am looking for is:- window1 - i have certain animation - want to publish change in some parameters of the animation, say the speed - subscribe the change in animation, see the effect in the same window.,then Window 2 - i have the same animation as window 1 -want to subscribe the change in speed published in window 1 , and see the same change in animation same as window that ideally i can use blender both as animation and simulation tool. thanks!
