Hi Jim thank´s for your reply
I will try to clarify a bit . . .
Input of a "new time value" will be done through a java "input time value" function (if that´s possible in java)
Then time value 1 and 2 will be processed through an other java "math" function ( it could be +,-, *, or / if that´s possible).
(Perhaps date, time values must be converted into millisecond´s be fore calculations will be possible, I don´t know)
The result would then be a - "new date", "new time" value
Then this new value will be used to trigger a time line animation.
I have a 360° circle that will simulate a orbit of "pearl image" running within a 1 year cycle.
By calculating the date,time of the present day + (let´s say) 93 day´s into the future and receive
a new date,time value - it will be possible to determine how far the animation of the orbit of the pearl will
move in the 1 year cycle.
The calculations above is done with "real time values" but the animation will be a simulation of these values, a scaled down version, just to visually make a point, so to say
