[R] changing angle in scatterplot3d

Thanks for your reply.
I had a look at both the cloud() function and the ggobi system. For my work what I need to do is save copies of a 3d plot from
many different files. So essential the procedure would be:
1. set and configure the data and create the plot
2. change the angle by X ammount
3. save to file
4. repeat 2. and 3.
All this has to run in a script so it should be automatable. Ggobi is interactive but as I understand it, it is not automatable. The
cloud() function would be ideal but unfortunately it is not yet fully implemented.
I think I can use the angle function within scatterplot3d. I was just wondering one thing. Is it possible to change the angle of a
3d plot after all the data has been set and all the other configuration information has been set?
Many Thanks For Your Help!
