Q: How to animate a list plot?

Greetings, I'm trying to figure out how to develop -- for lack of a better term -- an animated scatter plot. I have three variables, call them x, y, and z. The points x and y are recorded measurements on the same subjects, taken at different points in time. The variable z does not change over time. I'd like to find a way to visualize how the ListPlot[{x,z}] transitions into the ListPlot[{y,z}]. My sample of data is 250 points, so I am trying to visualize 250 points moving from one set of positions on the Cartesian plane to another set of positions. The y observations are more highly correlated with z, so one could image the points becoming more tightly clustered as one moves from x->y. Any thoughts on how I might show this? Thanks, -Mark
