Introduction to Effects

Like animations, VNgen features a scripted effects system which can execute arbitrary code within custom keyframe sequences. Unlike animations, however, effects are independent and do not apply to any particular entity. In fact, effects are a special entity type all their own.

Although effects and animations serve different purposes, the scripting syntax is nearly identical. It is also worth noting that while two animations of the same type cannot be performed simultaneously, you can perform as many effects as you want!

In this section, we will examine included effects you can use out of the box, as well as how to write your own.
