The water, aqueduct, and column are combined into one function named
One frame of the animation is shown by the function
And finally, the function
Using 12 frames gives a smooth animation.
An interesting animation can be set up which clearly shows the actual location of the graphics elements. The first scene shows the finished waterworks. The second scene rotates the first scene about the vertical axis, destroying the illusion. The third scene returns to the original viewpoint.
A list of viewpoints rotates the animation about the vertical axis.
The additional scenes are prepared by mapping the rotating viewpoints onto the original animation.
The three scenes are combined using the
Scene 1 can be set up (with the front end) as a sub-loop which repeats ten times to improve the effect.
