Introducing Animation into Processbook Displays

I am working on beefing up some of our existing displays that feel very static and uninformative, with new displays that show what's going on at a machine with better graphics and also some animation.


In my case I'm just trying to make it appear as though objects are moving from left to right (across a conveyor I've drawn). I attempted creating identical objects across the conveyor and just enabling or disabling the visibility property of each object every time the DataUpdate event occurs.


This works - sorta - but seems a bit of a hokey solution, and I'm wondering if there's anyone out there that has integrated animation into their displays. What did you use to create the animation? I'm looking for any ideas so please feel free to share.


Thank you.
