Posted:hey, i was thinking about doing something similar, except modelling the balls in 3dsmax and using Director's Lingo to move them round. it came from my idea of setting up metal detectors in a room, and wrapping my poi in tin foil, and taking the feed out of the metal detectors (a voltage change i think) into my computer, into lingo which would replicate what i was doing... sounds kinda complicated, but i thought you might find different ideas useful??? hopefully, anyway wink
