I answered this question yesterday, but my answer was deleted. Why is that?
The contents of the answer were:
I have a problem that looks very much like the "juddering" described in this topic. My program loads a file containing a few hundred 3D points into a list. The points are arranged in a spiral and dispersed by bounded randomization. I rotate the spiral around the z axis and create a table of graphics objects using
with appropriate parameters and options. The output is Export'ed to an animated .gif file.
I was surprised to see the z axis wandering around near the origin. The points appear to remain in correct locations with respect to the axes. I tried adjusting PlotRange as an option of Graphics in various ways to no effect.
This program is a variation on another program that had stable axes but generated the points internally, so I am puzzled by the difference in performance. I will be studying the remarks in this topic closely, but meanwhile if someone has a quick fix or just an explanation, it would be welcome.
I would attach the file "wandering_spiral.gif" and any other part of the program that might be of interest, but .gif is not supported as an upload and I have yet to master the skill of creating .mov files.
