- class matplotlib.backends.backend_mixed.MixedModeRenderer(figure, width, height, dpi, vector_renderer, raster_renderer_class=None, bbox_inches_restore=None)[source]#
A helper class to implement a renderer that switches between vector and raster drawing. An example may be a PDF writer, where most things are drawn with PDF vector commands, but some very complex objects, such as quad meshes, are rasterised and then output as images.
The figure instance.
The width of the canvas in logical units
The height of the canvas in logical units
The dpi of the canvas
An instance of a subclass of
RendererBasethat will be used for the vector drawing.
The renderer class to use for the raster drawing. If not provided, this will use the Agg backend (which is currently the only viable option anyway.)
Enter "raster" mode. All subsequent drawing commands (until
stop_rasterizingis called) will be drawn with the raster backend.
Exit "raster" mode. All of the drawing that was done since the last
start_rasterizingcall will be copied to the vector backend by calling draw_image.
