Hi Guys.

I got bored yesterday afternoon, and I was looking at circular motion with ActionScript, so I knocked up a poi simulator that interactively allows you to adjust hand and poi rotation around the hand.

Download poi sim

right click and choose save as - I find the flash player has a much higher frame rate than when the movie is displayed in the window.

I'll probly add another poi and arm, and also strings, and a couple of different trace modes at some stage when I get bored again smile

patterns you should be familiar with

arm 1 poi 4 - standard flower
arm 1 poi - 3 - antispin flower


if you want to see longer trails just multiply both figures by 2 - eg

arm 2 poi 8 - standard flower double speed double trail length.

It's worth it! smile

(-26, 501 then turn on persist and turn off hand.)

Of course, if you put in a manual entry thingo, patience would be a nonissue.. wink
