This page shows an applet version of the SmoothMoves application, as described in the article Smooth Moves. If you do not see the applet working, below, you may need to install the latest version of Java (this applet requires version 1.5 or later).

To access this applet's features, first click inside the applet (this sets mouse focus appropriately). Then use one of the keyboard toggles as described below:

You can also see the source code for SmoothAnimation.java, or download the SmoothAnimationDemo.zip to build or run the application locally.  The downloaded version will allow you to try out the Vertical Retrace fix (on Windows) that does not work in this Applet version.
