Effect script
Use Animate Effect script to create a movie from the current image and
apply varying effects to each new movie frame. You specify the law under which some of
effect parameters must vary from frame to frame and the script will apply the effect to
each frame depending on the entered values.
To specify the variation of parameters you can use arithmetic expressions using the
following components:
 Numeric constants
 Any number like 2, 6.9, 76.67. You can also use PI
for 3.1415926... and E for 2.7182818...
 One of the following operators:
 + (addition), 
(subtraction), * (multiplication), / (division), ^
(power)
 Parameter
 Use N keyword to represent the current
movie frame being processed.
 Functions
 One of the following functions:
SIN  Sine
COS  Cosine
TAN  Tangent
SQR  Square root
LOG  base10 logarithm
LN  natural logarithm
EXP  exponent (e raised to the
given power)
 Parentheses
 Use parentheses to control function evaluation order
For example, 5*(N1) will evaluate to 0 for the first frame, 5 for the
second, 10 for the third and so on.
