Question definition of dynamic geometry by using G4PVParameterisation::ComputeSolid/ComputeTransformation

Hi, I am trying to define dynamic geometry by using the Parameterisation class. What I did for this is to get the event number from ComputeSolid/ComputeTrasforamtion method and define the geometry according to the event number. However, I am not sure if this will work. Because, according to my understanding, Geant4 invokes the methods for Parameterized geometries when a particle reaches to the geometry involved in the Parameterized geometry, but if the geometry continuously changes its position or dimension according to the event number, it may be difficult to judge if the particle is in the parameterized geometry or not. It would be very appreciated if you could tell me if this may work, and how this works/or why dose not work.

Thank you in advance!!
