I have a set of say 20 data points whose x and y coordinates are available in a csv file at each frame . I have 1000 sets of this data with each set describing the location of 20 data points at a given instant (say frame).So essentially i have information about how these 20 points move about in 1000 frames . How to animate the movements of this points as a function of time in blender from the csv file.
Other Questions on the site have described how to read csv files using python etc but none seem to describe an approach to a complete solution for a problem of this kind.
Note : I don't want to interpolate these points to get a mesh .I just want to observe how these points move about with time as mentioned in the file.
An example of the set of columns in csv file: Point ID , X ,Y , time ,color
It would also be nice if you could tell me how to represent these points by circles centered around the respective x and y .
A sample file for illustraion: The following file contains a sample of data but in the form of a spreadsheet instead of csv.The time is in units of seconds http://jmp.sh/v/JfC1Qdh0RTZ85kKzR3lS
