One animation that is in WPF and not silverlight is AnimationUsingPath .. [you create a path, and have an element animate following that path] ..
For quick prototypes, I thought it would be handy to fake path animations by capturing the keyframes and replaying them in silverlight... I can do it all with out code or math, which is nice for designer's doing rapid prototyping..The gist:
Here is what the control looks like:
If you are a coder, all of these properties can be set programmatically via dependency properties ... Look at Page3.xaml in the harness attached with the source.
Here are a couple of quick samples of results: ball and fly.. [created by SysTim, thanks bro] ... and my original ball and fly Disclaimer: the paths were created rather quickly and I sampled at only 30 fps .. you likely need to tweak the settings and paths for a smoother experience.. and do some math and code for perfect/production smoothness .. but for prototypes the tool is handy and you can tweak the animation before and after in blend..
The source code for the control is here .. If you create a better showcase animation let me know or put a comment pointing to it.
