Animation in the Globe control

This sample describes how to create a group animation. It mimics the out-of-the-box functionality to create group animations available on the Animations toolbar in ArcGlobe. This sample creates a globe layer animation, which uses all the layers in the globe document to create a dynamic visual effect by changing the transparency and visibility of different layers. For example, this sample can be used to show the progression of a fire, where individual layers represent the fire boundary at a given time.

How to use
