algorithmic modeling for Rhino

I haven't had much time to experiment with Grasshopper the last months and didn't get to help out at the forum much either. So to contribute something, I figured it was time for me to make my first blog post. It's about animation in Grasshopper.

I noticed some related discussions pass by, and I saw what Andrew did the other day.

Now I'll show how I 'make my sliders move'. 

I 've been wanting to make a decent gha from it (that's why it has a name already: Galgo) but haven't gotten around to ask anybody to assist me with that, or learn it myself. So now I'll just post my User Objects, as they still help me very much when I'm animating. I replaced some old components, added discriptions for the inputs and cleaned up the reader I wrote.

The User Objects (that will appear in the Extra tab when dragged onto the GHcanvas), the reader and some simple examples are all in the attached zip.

Hope you like it.

Genius!It's much more convenient than the origin numberslider!Im also doing some research about GH animation with plugins such as kangaroo,heteroptera and something else.

Love this!

can I animate two sliders in this way:

if the first one is finished, the second should start?!

Thanks for the comments guys:)

If there are any remarks (on the definitions) please do make them: I might have lost the objective view on these definitions.

@Anyone: if you've tried these UO's, I'd love to see what you animated with it!
