Is there a way to animate only a part of an object. For instance, how is a hand of a clock animated?

The clock face would need to be one object and the hand would need to be a separate object.

That's a cool animated clock but is it possible to achieve this only using PP2010 animation facilities? Also, is it possible the clock hand to shrink and extend as it turns.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

The clock hand is a special case. It can be rotated, but objects rotate around a center point. So you'd double the clock hand and put it end-to-end with the other hand. Make the dummy clock hand transparent (no line, no fill) and group it with the real clock hand. Then apply the rotation.

http://www.indezine.com/bank/downloads/clockanimation.html has a good downloadable example.

I got it. However, it makes full circle. Can it be made to only cover an arc (rotate only for a part of the whole circle)?

Yes, you just type in a different amount in the spin options, or there are options for quarter spin and half spin that you can select. Open the animation pane and double-click the spin animation in the animation pane after it's been applied to an object, then you'll have access to those options.
