CAP Definition for Poi Chat and Tech Poi

22 Feb

I made this animation for a discussion in Poi Chat about CAPs (Continuous Assembly Patterns)

3 definitions for CAP:

1. CAP most often refers to the combined shape of extension and diamond antispin where the hand(s) reverse direction every half circle… changing from inspin to antispin (the prop doesn’t reverse direction so the relationship between the hand and the prop change.

2. CAP can also refer to the C-cap hand path described above, combining shapes other than Extension and Diamond Antispin. 
The pattern in this animation is Box Antispin transitioning into 2 petal inspin (vertical).

3. CAP as it was originally intended stands for Continuous Assembly Pattern, and means ANY PATTERN THAT COMBINES DIFFERENT STUFF AND REPEATS…. so there’s 8 step caps and 40 step caps and…. WHAT CAN YOU MAKE THAT REPEATS (that is more than a single pattern)? That’s a cap.
