Stumbled upon this funny little curve. I have seen it show its face in many old experiments,

but i never knew the curve is called a Lissajous curve.

a **normal** Lissajous curve:

Played around with it. Added an equation for the Z-Axis. I liked the result so i plugged it in my little lab engine.

something like:

There are 3 particles.

All have a random Lissajous behaviour for x, y and z.

The fader modifier takes care of the tales.

**Lissajous3D:**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 | var t:Number = N; var a:Number = 9; var b:Number = 8; var S:Number = t * (Math.PI / 2); var x:Number = xx * Math.sin( a * t + S ); var y:Number = yy * Math.sin(b * t); var z:Number = zz * Math.cos((a/b)*S); |

Here’s the result.
