sheesh... I go away to siggraph and this forum explodes... I particularly love this challenge, well done to all who have submitted anything.

I went hi and lo, hunted for dozen of share/free-ware.....and then used imagereday that came bundled with photoshop7, it was there all along, and did a short quick sweet job of converting the frames....
no previous training required :

Primarily the circumference formula that got it working, which I belive is probably the same as surflen(). However, there are few things in teh formula that I am still wondering "why". Couldn't come up with an explaination, but it jsut worked.
Wrote a bunch of simple conditional custom expression function just so that I can give some randomness to the trans/rot/scale.
Dealing with the pivot is probably the trickiest. Some how I don't quite remember the pivot in H4 behaving the same way as H5 did... can any one comfirm this?
anyway, now I just need to figure out how to get it to gif.
Again, my solution is anything but elegant. It's quite messy, as a metter of fact. It'll be a long while before I got it to the "Jason-elegant" solution. (Howdy, Jason.)

...judging by the overwhelming amount of traffic this thread had the past 5 days, I'd say it is time we post our solutiond, don't you agree?...Snej?

But you're probably right... lets start posting them solutions!!!!!! Wohoo!
Mine was a silly one at first:
rotate the cube by 90 degrees, then pop it back to 0 (so $F%90). Then, I moved the cube forward by it's length every 90 frames (floor($F/90))
Stupid, I know, but it works. Well, of course there had to be some modifications to make them different sizes and speeds. $F turned into a channel reference, and I had to add some multipliers to take the size into considerations. All in all really simple though.

same here....except for the fancy expressions....don't ask why....it happened so fast...

Here's mine. The same technique. 90 degree rotation.
