animate 3d plots?

Is there an animation function for 3d plots? Specifically, I'm looking to animate some plots drawn with Tachyon, but I don't see any animation functions either in the Tachyon documentation or in the 3d base classes documentation. I have seen that there is an animate function for 2d plots, 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?

p.s. If this is already available, I'll volunteer to add information about it to the Tachyon documentation.

For an example, an animation where the curve changes color from magenta to white would be great:

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()
