Turn an animation parameter into a continuous function or graph

I made an animation where some parameters define the movement of two points (points A and B) on a circumference. When I start the animation, I want to graph their respective angle values (y) in relation to the elapsed time (x) so that I can take the absolute value of the derivative of both graphs and see if the points have equal angular vlocity (doesn't matter the direction) at some given point in time.

I can only record POINTS (angle, time) using the "record to spreadsheet" option, which is no good. I need a continuous graph.Any ideas?

Please send the current state of your animation.

I managed to go around this: I slowed the animation down and made the angle that drives the animation (always grows in a constant speed) into (x) and the angles that I want to find out about into the (y); I got about 200 points, then I use the ‘fit’ command to get a good function in the domain I'm working on, differentiate it, take its absolute value and done.

Perhaps a solution using Locus() is also possible. (Then you would have no timing problem)
