Pendulum Waves

Back when this video was making its rounds on the interwebs (it periodically resurfaces but its popularity seems to be dying out, perhaps behaving like a damped harmonic oscillator), I did a little project explaining the motions involved.

It appears something got wonky with the transparency options but everything else seems to work fine.  If you click and drag on the animations you can rotate them in 3D.  Try adding a bunch of extra pendula if your computer can handle rendering it.
