Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the code in Mathematica 7.

This plots a sphere with one of the quadrants cut out. I wish to animate this plot by rotating about the body diagonal of the bounding box. With the above Animate, I get te subsequent frames to jump around. How can that be fixed.Code (Text):

sphere = RegionPlot3D[(x^2 + y^2 + z^2 <= 1) && (x < 0 || y < 0 ||

z < 0), {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, -1, 1}, Mesh -> False,

Boxed -> False, Axes -> True, AxesOrigin -> {0, 0, 0},

AxesLabel -> {X, y, Z}, PlotPoints -> 50,

ColorFunctionScaling -> False,

ColorFunction ->

Function[{x, y, z}, ColorData["Rainbow"][1 - (x^2 + y^2 + z^2 )]],

ViewPoint -> {1, 1, 1}, ViewVertical -> {1, 0, 0},

ViewCenter -> {0, 0, 0}]

Animate[Show[sphere, ViewVertical -> {Cos[v], Sin[v], 0},

ViewCenter -> {1, 1, 1}], {v, 0, 2 Pi, Pi/20}]

Ultimately, I would like to make a movie clip out of it, what would be the best way to go about doing that.

Thanks in advance.
