Well, actually that’s not entirely true.  We have plans to do animations around the 'content' we have in our graphics, but have been delaying until this animation dust settles as we need to have a working, cross supported animation scheme to even consider it.

Till then, we continue to do our animations in a 'flip-book' fashion developed way back in our CGM tools days.

Though that may still be irrelevant to the topic.
