Simple 3D animation question

Thanks Rick - yes an icosahedrons wireframe is quite minimal. No opacity or shading needed at this stage. Livecode animation of the graphic object is certainly fast enough. It’s acceptable smooth enough - though not ideal due to lack of antialiasing (I think).
I could look around for some existing Javascriot based examples and look to control them through do as Javascriot calls to the browser widget - but I’d prefer more control over layering and blend modes.
Animation engine had some simple examples. I’m not sure about anything else?
