    Animation on a satellite graphics system



    Although animation processing capability can be extremely valuable in certain graphics programs, its application is generally limited to users of stand alone, single user graphics systems. This paper describes an organization of software which enables a host program to define and control animations for an intelligent satellite graphics system. The discussion centers around the particular system on which it was implemented, but the technique should be general enough to have wide application. The results have significantly enhanced the operating characteristics of programs in the host-satellite environment.
