[Update REQ 6847]: Making Animations with Geomview

It's true that StageManager will do this and much more too. But there's also a very easy way to do this directly inside the Animate module: the Command function will run an arbitrary GCL command after each frame. So to automatically take snapshots at each frame, you'd hit the Command button and type something like (snapshot c0 /tmp/foo%03d.rgb) into the text field. Then when you hit play you'll see that it's now jerky since it's saving an image off to disk each time. You might want to turn on the "Once" radio button so that it stops after running through each frame once. Then you can use your program of choice to create an animated gif or quicktime movie from this bunch of image files. For instance, on the SGIs you could do this with "mediaconvert". > P.S. Geomview is a great program. Thanks! We always like to hear that :) TM --- Tamara Munzner munzner at cs.stanford.edu http://www-graphics.stanford.edu/~munzner
