matplotlib.animation.TimedAnimation

class matplotlib.animation.TimedAnimation(fig, interval=200, repeat_delay=0, repeat=True, event_source=None, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Animation subclass for time-based animation.

A new frame is drawn every interval milliseconds.

Note

You must store the created Animation in a variable that lives as long as the animation should run. Otherwise, the Animation object will be garbage-collected and the animation stops.

Parameters
figFigure

The figure object used to get needed events, such as draw or resize.

intervalint, default: 200

Delay between frames in milliseconds.

repeat_delayint, default: 0

The delay in milliseconds between consecutive animation runs, if repeat is True.

repeatbool, default: True

Whether the animation repeats when the sequence of frames is completed.

blitbool, default: False

Whether blitting is used to optimize drawing.

__init__(fig, interval=200, repeat_delay=0, repeat=True, event_source=None, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Methods

__init__(fig[, interval, repeat_delay, ...])

new_frame_seq()

Return a new sequence of frame information.

new_saved_frame_seq()

Return a new sequence of saved/cached frame information.

pause()

Pause the animation.

resume()

Resume the animation.

save(filename[, writer, fps, dpi, codec, ...])

Save the animation as a movie file by drawing every frame.

to_html5_video([embed_limit])

Convert the animation to an HTML5 <video> tag.

to_jshtml([fps, embed_frames, default_mode])

Generate HTML representation of the animation
