Animations are created in 3 steps:
- Initialize an
- Save each frame of the animation with
- Convert the frames to an animated gif with
gif(anim, filename, fps=15)
There are two macros for varying levels of convenience in creating animations:
@gif. The main difference is that
@animate will return an
Animation object for later processing, and
@gif will create an animated gif file (and display it when returned to an IJulia cell).
@gif for simple, one-off animations that you want to view immediately. Use
@animate for anything more complex. Constructing
Animation objects can be done when you need full control of the life-cycle of the animation (usually unnecessary though).
