Circle Animation

Mark shared this question 3 months ago

I would like to make a circle animation curve from a point (a,b) with radius R.

I figure it out how to do a half circle, and I can make to halves to make a circle but it's messy and I'm sure there is a more elegant way to create a circle from any center with a given radius.

Thanks for anyone who can help :)

Maybe you are looking for this

with CircularArc instead of Circle

There's a tool (and Command) to create a circle with center and given radius. If you create a point Point(<circle>) and check the option animation you have an animated point on it. You can hide the circke if you want. If you want to skip the intermediate steps you can create a custom tool.

The point is moving through the circle but i want it to draw the circle as well, is there a way to do it?

You might hide the circle and draw the point on it with trace marked so to look as if a circle is drawn. But as I said, if yoy want to do this with one tool or command, you have to create a custom tool for it with the center and radius as start objects and the animated point as end object.
