another request for help, from a Cesium newbie / Google Earth migrant:
-- should not use flyTo()
(because I'd like to avoid the "kangaroo jump" effect;
-- should not use CZML
(I'll certainly look into it later, but not yet... :-))
-- should not require full understanding and/or modification
of the source code in Cesium.js
-- should work with the current Cesium v. 1.7.1
I have looked at the tutorials, the demos, even at the CZML Guide, and have searched this forum, but got lost in the jungle a bit, and couldn't find a simple enough (for me) example.
An additional problem is that apparently things have changed considerably recently. E.g. I did find a forum post (from 2013) describing what I was looking for, but when trying to run the animation, found that e.g. update() is no longer there, or perhaps behaves differently now. In general it seems that a lot has changed specifically with regard to animations.
So, any pointers to simple, practical, and up-to-date examples would be much appreciated.
