Drawing an Ellipse Using Conjugate Diameters in Flash 5 (ActionScript 1.0)

This proof of concept was created to prepare the display algorithm of planetary orbits for the Interactive 3D Solar System Model. Given 3 endpoints of the ellipse's conjugate diameters, the script computes the vectors of the minor and major axis through intermediate points and plots the ellipse. You can interact by dragging the crosshairs.
