One of my first Animations, only a repeat animated Gif at present, but seems to work quite well.

Wish me well with my venture into the world of animations, think I am going to need it.

Thanks Tim, I need to get up to scratch with the animation side, as I intend to venture into some Kinetic Sculpture designs this year, been putting it off for a while, but with my new system, got lots of memory and cpu power now to try things out.

Aye, just what the doctor ordered!  I wish I had more time for animation, but a nice summer and large garden, have got in the way for while.  :)

Looking forward to an example, some time . . . no pressure!

Thanks for the support Tim and David, only a novice at the animation scenarios at present, just brushing up on the best formats to use for youtube and facebook, what a pity they don't cater for repeat loops and you have to create a large file from a very small number of frames. I was having a look at your fascinating Bluemin Onion animation David, a real masterpiece along with lots of your other work, a great combination of maths, music, art and design. Some great animation examples on the forum now, and some long hours that have gone into them, but no doubt a lot of satisfaction with the end results.

I have been up most nights nearly all night for the last year, and am worn down a bit, I must off to bed now, but always something new to learn.

Only 4 frames Gaz, but that was so the animated text was not blinking too fast, although it probably still needs slowing down a bit. The original was three frames without text.

Over a thousand parts in this model, so took a little bit of setting up.

Sorry Gaz, I think it was six frames, the original was three with the text on each frame a different colour, but it was too fast, so doubled the frames.
