Viewing animations also on RealTime3D


Is it possible to get combined viewing of Display of motion AND Change
of ViewPoint e.g.,

A line rotating in a vertical plane with uniform speed or a
pendulum oscillating  in a vertical plane  or great circle dynamic
orbits on a sphere

with ...

1)ViewPoint varied around its plane of rotation  for lateral view in
RealTime3D using a mouse and

2) When several time separated frames are already made by animation?
i.e., without resorting to a direct SpinShow?

I wish to be able to see a point moving on a great circle of a sphere
from all sides. Motion on the invisible side could be made visible by
motion of the gripped mouse. The SpinShow can be controlled. That would
be useful and quite a fun too.

Thanks in advance.

The following as it is does not work.

<< Graphics`Animation`; << RealTime3D` ;

 ShowAnimation[
        Table[Graphics[Line[{{0,0},{Cos[t],Sin[t]}}],
            PlotRange\[Rule]{{-1,1},{-1,1}},
            AspectRatio->Automatic ],{t,0,2Pi,Pi/12}]];
    <<Default3D`
