Type Hat
Introduced in 3.0

The when video motion > () block is a hat block and a Video Sensing block. It activates when the current video motion on the stage is greater than the number entered. Prior to Scratch 3.0, the option "video motion" was included in the When () > () block instead of the Video Sensing extension.

Example Uses

This block can be used for many things, such as:

  • Being motion activated:
when video motion > (10)
broadcast (start v)
  • Making a sprite move when there is motion:
when video motion > (10)
move (10) steps
if on edge, bounce


Main article: List of Block Workarounds

The block can be replicated by using a wait until block in conjunction with a Greater Than or Less Than block:

wait until < (video (motion v) on (stage v)) > (10) >
. . .
wait until < not < (video (motion v) on (stage v)) > (10) > >
