Well, I've been doing some research on early computer animations, and I have to tell that the first ones are not from the seventies, but well earlier. FREAX will have a chapter about the history of computer graphics, the origin of demo effects, and in that chapter I wrote some stuff about the first computer anims. For example, an old movie of Alfred Hitchcock, 'Vertigo' features a computer generated endscroller. And there was a guy (forgot his name) who was using a machine gun controlling computer from a B-29 Superfortress bomber to create "robotic" camera movement in a short film.

Tomaes, I think the machine gun guy was John Whitney (see my post above).

Yes, that's right. I looked up my own book and got surprised. :) The movie was titled Lapsus - what a coincidence.
