Specifically, I'm looking to animate some plots drawn with Tachyon, but I don't see any animation functions either in the [Tachyon documentation](http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference/sage/plot/plot3d/tachyon.html) or in the [3d base classes documentation](http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference/sage/plot/plot3d/base.html). I have seen that there is an animate function for [2d plots](http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference/sage/plot/animate.html), but it says that the input needs to be a "graphics object", and I don't think Tachyon objects are recognized as such. So maybe modifying the 2d animation functions could do what I want, but is there something else already available?
For an example, an animation where the curve changes color from magenta to white would be great:
<pre>
sage: f = lambda t: (t,t^2,t^3)
sage: t = Tachyon(camera_center=(5,0,4))
sage: t.texture('t')
sage: t.light((-20,-20,40), 0.2, (1,1,1))
sage: t.parametric_plot(f,-5,5,'t',min_depth=6)
sage: t.show()
</pre>
p.s. If this **is** already available, I'll volunteer to add information about it to the Tachyon documentation.nilesSat, 04 Sep 2010 10:59:25 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7666/
