ideas on 3 axle functions going though turntable?

Here's how to do it:
get as many freely spinning axles through the turntable, then one ofter another get into the centre then lead them away to their functions:
hope you understand
Very genius sollution. I'm just wondering if the "get into the centre and lead them away" is required on both sides. I think it would be sufficient and probably more efficient to do it only on one side.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

No, it's not needed, but it would take just as lot of space as it takes now; only difference is that everything would be on one side of the turntable, instead of 50/50 as it is now.

All the geartrains will still be affected by the movements of the main turntable, but that seems to be harder to avoid and happens in the usual method for two geartrains too (8258/8043).

I saved the frames to separate .pngs and then converted them to a video using gimp. For some reason this messed up the colors and the first upload had a 'black crush' (although this didn't happen when I opened it in VLC ). I fixed this by reducing the contrast on each image using imagemagick but now lbg and dbg look too similar.

edit: I really dont think it would fit in the 8053, but it's absolutely worth a try
I tried with 8421 and ended up with this http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=3909612

Yeah, i know.. I'm in the 9th grade (=11th US grade, i think), so i have quite a bit of homework to do, tests to practice for, and papers to write :/
have anything special happened/been built?

I don't think so, but perhaps the new small turntable could be used somehow. Do you know when the 1h2012 sets will come?

Note that a 24 tooth concrate/crown gear can fit inside of the inner gear and if im not mistaken I think a LEGO 24 tooth clutch gear should be able tp aswell which allows for bi rotational movement but only slips when used on one direction, the other one meshes
Since the outer gear of the gear 'ring' is bi rirectional you can have 4 'speeds' with one gear ring so one can be for one function of the midel ,and the other one can be for 'such and such'
Just have two gear rings beside each other but on counter rotating axles that are still put 'end to end' in this configurationand that is 8 functions.
You can put two 8L axles with stops back to back (yes the stops are back to back) and then lock something over the stops so that it is harder to pulll them apart but still allows for counter-rotation which means having the hole for the axle a 'pin' hole not an axle hole.

Hopefully you can see the video alright....
The design above will not work,to make it work it requires one height retractable drive shaft to power the turntables.

The pink drive shaft is connected to a cam which in turn lifts the whole middle axle,this then powers the third function.
Both blue and yellow gears are for your main functions which are still powered independently of one another.
The red gear is for the extra function.
