Detailed Description

Animated oscillating rotation node.

The SoPendulum class is derived from SoRotation, so it applies a rotation to the current transformation. Using engines connected to the realTime global field, the rotation value is animated over time between two fixed rotations, achieving the effect of a swinging pendulum. The period of the swing can be adjusted by changing the speed field. The current rotation at any time is available in the rotation field, inherited from SoRotation
