matplotlib.artist.Artist.set_animated

Artist.set_animated(b)[source]

Set whether the artist is intended to be used in an animation.

If True, the artist is excluded from regular drawing of the figure. You have to call Figure.draw_artist / Axes.draw_artist explicitly on the artist. This approach is used to speed up animations using blitting.

See also matplotlib.animation and Faster rendering by using blitting.
