communicating with forms
The short answer is no. You can only communicate with a running Animator process through the control panel. However, the following kludge comes to mind is this: animate does accept command-line options. You could do something like this: (transform g0 g0 g0 rotate .2 0 0) (backcolor allcams 1 0 0) # play through once. don't even show animate panel. (emodule-run "animate -s 50 -p -o -hide -f /u/gcg/ngrap/data/geom/[a-e]*.off") (shell "/etc/killall animate") (transform g0 g0 g0 rotate -1 0 0) (sleep-for 5) (backcolor allcams 0 1 0) (delete World) # start up animator again, with the same files, in bounce mode. (emodule-run "animate -s 50 -p -b -f -hide /u/gcg/ngrap/data/geom/[a-e]*.off") (sleep-for 10) (shell "/etc/killall animate") (backcolor allcams 0 0 1) Of course, when you restart the animator it reloads all the files, which could take a while if you have a lot of geometric data. There is a facility in the GCL to pass messages to a running emodule (emodule-transmit), but unfortunately the Animator doesn't currently listen for anything...
