Move (with time, like glide)?

I've got a student who wants to control the speed that the pen moves.

Like how glide has a time parameter for how long to spend gliding to an absolute position, but he's using relative motion -- he is at a position and orientation and wants to just [move 10] but have it take a certain duration. So he wants a flavor of the move block with a time parameter -- that doesn't exist, right?

Any ideas (besides creating that as a custom block that computes the destination coordinate based on current position/orientation)?

Would the Animation library help them achieve want they want?


thx for the tip, I hadn't seen that before. Hard to tell exactly what those blocks are for (with no help... comments).

Fortunately, the excellent student went ahead and created a custom block [move %dist %secs], using trig functions to compute the destination coordinates given the current position and orientation, and then just call glide

He is excellent.
