JavaFX Path Transition
It allows the node to animate through a specified path over the specified duration. In JavaFX, the path is defined by instantiating the class javafx.scene.shape.Path.
The translation along this path is done by updating the x and y coordinate of the node at the regular intervals. The rotation can only be done in the case when the orientation is set to be OrientationType.ORTHOGONAL_TO_TANGENT.
In JavaFX, the class javafx.animation.PathTransition represents the path transition. We need to instantiate this class in order to create an appropriate path transition.
The properties of the class along with the setter methods are described in the following table.
There are three constructors in the class.
In the following example, we have created a polygon and applied the path transition on it which is simulating the path of a pendulum.
