Is there a lesson on animation within K3D for windows?
How do I link objects?
Where do I find key entry points?
Thanks

You can connect any node property to any other property of the same type. Each property in the Node Properties Panel has a small \"plug\" icon next to it that can be used to make/break connections. If you connect a property, directly or indirectly, to the \"time\" property of the TimeSource node that is part of every new document, then its value will change over time. Using scripted modifiers with \"time\" as an input, you can create arbitrarily-complex animations, see
http://www.k-3d.org/wiki/Category:Scripting
Also, try some of the sample documents located in share/documents/animation, which demonstrate scripted animation.
All of this is extremely powerful, but not particularly friendly. K-3D 0.7 will focus on adding the animation features to the user interface (such as keyframes) that people expect.
Cheers,
Tim
