The linked file below is another version of the animation reported in the post entitled “Prototype Animation Anticipating Data from BCO” on the 16th February last. In this case however the data that drives the animation of the same circle is the actual data from an online archive of values representing the quasar’s behaviour as captured in studies of the object from various locations on earth.
The data driving the animation is a small selection of values that have been collected from the archive and processed through a combination of functions and regular expressions. In this example there are in total 28 keyframes driving the motion. No consideration has been given yet to the aesthetics or function of the animation. Developments in relation to this will be posted in due course.
