You may recall that I've featured some of Sven Drieling's work previously in this blog, for example in the JavaFX Animation - Some of Sven's Canvas Tricks post. Well, Sven has updated his animation examples and added to the collection to help us prepare for the JavaFX SDK. Here's a screenshot of Sven's AnimationRadar example, in which he animates an arc-shaped clip of an image to look like the sweep of a radar. Because it's an animation, the running program looks cooler than the static screenshot. :-)
In another example, Sven uses nested Timelines to progressively start three blocks animating. Here's a screenshot:
Take a look at the page in which Sven stashes his many animation examples, and try out the examples via Java Web Start links on that page while studying his great code.
