Perhaps if I state my problem you might suggest a method using 
mathematica how it could be accomplished.
How can I translate a graph, say a triangle, in an R2 coordinate system 
to another given position on the x y plane showing all the various 
stages from the one position to the other?
The triangle was formed by connecting the points (-4,4),(-3,-2) and 
(-2,-4) by straight lines...and another triangle was formed by 
translating that triangle by (6,6). Suppose you want to move the first 
triangle smoothly to the position of the second triangle using, let's 
say, a total of 31 frames numbered- 0, 1, 2,...30. How would one go 
about generating each frame?
Thanks for whatever
