Bases: how it works

- an animation it's a "frames collection"

- each frame can be generated by a time-dependant function (a parametric equation)

- parameter must be a vector (a column matrix)

parameter examples

- parametric equations can be mono-parametric or multi-parametric

parametric equations

- when you plot an animation, the animation parameter must be defined as "t"

plot syntax

- right-click on your plots to define the animation settings

  • parameter source: Animate > u / v / tRange (in this example, any other vector in your files)

now each frame take a progressive position of the source variable as "t" value

  • animation speed: Frame rate > ###

f.e. "frame-rate > 2" means 2 frames per second

  • loop settings: Frame rate > No animation / Play once / Repeat Indefinitely

selecting "No animation" you can see each frame step-by-step with ALT+left / ALT+right

Examples

- 2D plot
- frame source: v
- frame rate: 2

EXAMPLE 01

- 2D plot
- multiple equations
- frame source: v
- frame rate: 5

EXAMPLE 02

- 2D plot
- frame source: tRange
- frame rate: 50

EXAMPLE 03

- 3D plot
- multiple equations
- frame source: tRange
- frame rate: 50

EXAMPLE 04a
