STELLARIUM SCRIPTS

Chapter 1: Runnig a script
Chapter 2: Writing a simple script
Chapter 3: List of commands (the superscript.sts)
Chapter 4: The "copy and paste" method
Chapter 5: Examples of scripts



1) Running a script

A Stellarium360 script is a text file, using the extension .sts

It has to be placed in a specific directory, the actual version of stellarium360 uses 5 directories:

~/.stellarium360/scripts/shows/
~/.stellarium360/scripts/basis/
~/.stellarium360/scripts/planets/
~/.stellarium360/scripts/deepsky/
~/.stellarium360/scripts/navigation/

When running Stellarium360, press M
-select the 7th menu with up and down arrow keys
Select the category corresponding to where you put the script (7.1 or 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5) with the right arrow key (or Enter). If you're not in the appropriate menu, use the up / down arrow to display the menu 7.1
-Type again the right arrow (or Enter). This time you are in the scripts folder
-Type up / down key to select the script that you want
-Confirm your choice with the Enter key (not necessary)
-Exit the menu by pressing the M key, the script automatically starts

Notes: 
-During the execution, it's possible to put the process in pause. It is generally expected. press key K or <SPACE> to resume
-If you made a mistake, you can stop the script by using the <G> key



2) Writing a simple script

With the notepad, create a text file. Remember to name the file with a .sts extension (stellarium script)
This file is composed of simple commands that allows to "remote" stellarium360.
First, to include comments, simply start the line with a #

# This is a comment

To begin with we will look at the time controls
To accelerate the movement of stars

timerate rate x timerate rate x
x = acceleration time in seconds

timerate rate 60
# used to accelerate the time x60 in relation to the "real time"
# in this example, 1 second corresponds to 1 minute of elapsed time software
# 900 may exceed sore heart.

Note 1: to skip days, it is advisable to use the "relative date".

timerate rate 1 
# to return to normal scrolling

timerate rate 0 
# stop time, can be useful if you want to avoid shooting stars

wait duration x 

x number of seconds
example:

wait duration 10
# waits during 10s

script action pause
# Stop  the script, resume by pressing the K key

date utc 2008:11:10T14:30:00
# Set the date and time on 10.11.2008 at 14:30 utc

Exercise No. 1
View the sky at midnight on 2008/12/24
scroll 5 hours of time over an interval of 5 seconds
back to real time
stop script
go back to 1200x for 15 seconds
back to real time

answer
# script example No. 1
date utc 2008:12:24T00:00:00 
timerate rate 3600
wait duration 5
timerate rate 1
script action pause
timerate rate -1200 
wait duration 15 
timerate rate 1 

subsidiary question: what is the arrival time?

4) The copy and paste method

A quick and easy way to learn to program stellarium360 is to copy some code from an existing script, then change a few settings to make a "test" and understand the syntax. As you may realize, a stellarium360 script is rather austere and any typo results in ignorance of the order ...

-about pictures
to be not distorted, and properly displayed, the images must be square, in a multiple of 8 resolution (eg 512x512 or 256x256). stellarium360 knows only manipulate PNG format, which has the advantage of running a layer alpha, enabling transparency. Remember when you prepare an image for a show stellarium360 to choose a background color (eg black) to be made transparent to the registration in PNG format (the menu options in paintshop eg)

-about sound
the format used in stellarium360 is. ogg, a free software like audacity allows the manipulation of sound files of all kinds and the conversion to ogg
2 ways to use it:
small sequences: practice, just run the command at the right time. Drawback: it's not possible for example to insert both a comment on an action and a soundtrack in the background; stellarium360 only knows how to manage one ogg track at a time.

For large sequences: more sports, but allowing more flexibility. Once the script done in terms of animation, you must obtain a paper, a pencil and a stopwatch to note the position of all the sounds. The result is a time line, which to build a sound file with such audacity. It is then possible to insert comments, background music (note: use music free or do you pay a fee to SACEM, in France).
