The Analyze CHOP looks at the values of all the values of a channel, and outputs a single-number result into the output. The output is one sample long. It can analyze for maximum, average, peaks and other aspects of a channel.
Parameters - Analyze Page
function - ⊞ - This menu determines the function applied to the channel.
average- The average of the channel.
maximum- The maximum value of the channel.
minimum- The minimum value of the channel.
- Index of Maximum
- Index of Minimum
sum- The sum of all the samples in the channel.
- RMS Power
rmspower- The RMS (root-mean-square) of the channel.
- Value of First Peak
firstpeakvalue- The value of the first peak in the channel.
- Index of First Peak
firstpeakindex- The index of the first peak in the channel. The index of the first sample is 0.
- Value of Last Peak
- Index of Last Peak
- Value of Highest Peak
highestpeakvalue- The value of the highest peak in the channel.
- Index of Highest Peak
highestpeakindex- The index of the highest peak in the channel. If multiple samples have the same highest peak value, it returns the index of the last peak sample.
- Value of Lowest Peak
lowestpeakvalue- The value of the lowest peak in the channel.
- Index of Lowest Peak
lowestpeakindex- The index of the lowest peak in the channel. If multiple samples have the same lowest peak value, it returns the index of the last peak sample.
- Total Peaks
totalpeaks- The total number of peaks in the channel.
Allow Start Peaks
allowstart - If the values of the first 2 samples are v0 and v1, if v0 > v1, count it as a peak. The default is to never count the first sample as a peak.
Allow End Peaks
allowend - If the values of the last 2 samples are vn and vm, if vm > vn, count it as a peak. The default is to never count the last sample as a peak.
No Peak Value
nopeakvalue - When no peaks are found, make this number (default is
-1) the result that is output. When the Function is set to Peak Index or Peak Value, it is a way to detect that no peaks were found.
Analyze Valleys vs Peaks
valleys - Analyze instead for the First Valley, Highest Valley, and Lowest Valley, when the corresponding Function menu options are chosen.
Parameters - Common Page
timeslice - Turning this on forces the channels to be "Time Sliced". A Time Slice is the time between the last cook frame and the current cook frame.
scope - To determine which channels get affected, some CHOPs use a Scope string on the Common page.
Sample Rate Match
srselect - ⊞ - Handle cases where multiple input CHOPs' sample rates are different. When Resampling occurs, the curves are interpolated according to the Interpolation Method Option, or "Linear" if the Interpolate Options are not available.
- Resample At First Input's Rate
first- Use rate of first input to resample others.
- Resample At Maximum Rate
max- Resample to the highest sample rate.
- Resample At Minimum Rate
min- Resample to the lowest sample rate.
- Error If Rates Differ
err- Doesn't accept conflicting sample rates.
exportmethod - ⊞ - This will determine how to connect the CHOP channel to the parameter. Refer to the Export article for more information.
- DAT Table by Index
datindex- Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the index of the channel in the CHOP.
- DAT Table by Name
datname- Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the name of the channel in the CHOP.
- Channel Name is Path:Parameter
autoname- The channel is the full destination of where to export to, such has
autoexportroot - This path points to the root node where all of the paths that exporting by Channel Name is Path:Parameter are relative to.
exporttable - The DAT used to hold the export information when using the DAT Table Export Methods (See above).
