Translate with Variables?

I am having a lot of fun playing with a DC Missile Launcher with my camera attached to it and I am trying to write a good face tracking program but I am stuck in a spot.

Is it in the plans to allow the Translate module and the other Transforms to allow for variables rather than just integers? Or is there another way I could complete the following task?

More or less, I am trying to get just the contents of the COG box to appear, but within its original location (as opposed to a crop of just the contents at a new image size).
The plan right now is:
-Marker [original]

-Movement 30
-Center of Gravity

-Marker [] (revert to original)
-VBScript (to calculate the proper xmin,xmax,ymin,ymax for crop based off of COG_SIZE and COG x,y)
-Crop [xmin],[ymin] - [xmax],[ymax]

-Marker [cog_crop] (revert to original)
-Mosaic (with just [cog_crop] to build a new 320x240 image with [cog_crop] in lower left)

{here is where I would love for translate to accept a variable}
-Translate [COG_X], [COG_Y]

this would allow the image on the mosaic to translate the X and Y values from COG making what would appear to be a dynamic translation of the cropped COG box over the original image size. (I know the mosaic part is a little shifty to obtain my results but hey I am only a few days into learning the program!)

Keep up the great work!

Yes, the idea is to allow for most modules to use the [variable] notation to access variable amounts but we end up doing this on a need to use basis. We've updated the translate module to accept [x] as a value. Please download v1.7.14.1 to get this change. If there are others you need updated please just let us know and we'll get on it asap.

Thanks so much for getting an update together for me. Translate function works great. I will have to let you know how it works out for me when I get the chance to work out the kinks of my program.

Thanks again, keep up the good work!
