Hi everyone, here's my new brain twister... ;) I'm trying to achieve an elevtron like movement (i mean an electron orbiting a proton) - you know the shape i'm talking about, like the one shown here: Now obviously I can create 3 ellipses and move each particle in it's own ellipse - but is there a way to create a smooth motion the moves along the entire path (going through all 3 ellipses)? I'm trying to use several methods, some more successful than others but still no winner :) can someone think of an elegant way of doing this? of course it's not such a big deal, it's just that I like doing things the hard way some times just for the sake of learning... Ehud.

given that the three elipses together dont form a smooth shape themselves, i have a suspicion the answer to that is going to be 'no'.

Heh, is that Logic in the background? :)

If it has to move along the entire path with small localized increments, then I strongly suspect 'no'

If on the other hand you mean that the positional increment is allowed to be 'large' as long as the increment has a low variance/deviation, then I suspect that its solvable with some restrictions. Each 'electron' (in the viewers perspective, he sees more than one) might be required to have the same phase, for example.
