I am modeling a molecule.  I have six line segments.  I know the coordinates of their ends as functions of time.  Naively, I would think it would go like this:

define some functions (composites of trig functions, rational functions, etc)

define points 1,2, ..., 6.   (in terms of the functions)

define line1, line2, ...., line6

define structure = union of 6 lines

animate(structure) as t goes from t_0, ..., t_1

How exactly do i do this?

I would like to overwrite a plot that's updated within a loop over time. 

I used animate already, but the problem is that it's  only updated at specific points in time (not regularly distributed) and with animate I can only use frames that are equally divided over the wholre range. To update each time step costs unneeded memory and time. 

I hope that there exists a better solution.

thanks for your help.

Hi all,


I'm trying to create the 3D animation which can show the idea of rotating 2D function plot, such as:



display(seq(surfdata([seq([seq([x, cos(2*p*Pi*(1/25))*x^(1/2), -sin(2*p*Pi*(1/25))*x^(1/2)], x = 0 .. 4, .1)], p = 0 .. t)]), t = 1 .. 25), insequence = true);

But it's too inconvenient because of too many seq functions in this commond, is there any easier way to plot this animatiton?

Thank you.

Hi, is it possible to instantly start the display of plot animations after they are generated in maple? I searched for answers in the documentation and on the internet but couldn't find a solution. I would like to skip the step of manually clicking the plot and the "play animation" button.

Hi all, I am new to MAPLE, I have been using Mathematica mostly. Here is what i am trying to do in MAPLE, 

Use the procedure plotmotion 2 on the plotmo worksheet to animate the motion of a marble in a bowl of the shape of the bottom half of the ellipsoid x^2/16 + y^2/12 +z^2/9 = 1

Can anyone help? It will be greatly appreciated.

is it possible to use an animated zoom on a pointplot?

I used the view option (view = [-t .. t, -t .. t]) and animated the t value in a sequence, but it did not work.

kind regards,

Hi All,

I am using pds:-animate to show the results of integration of a two function system, u(x,t) and v (x,t). I would like this command uses two different colors for each line but the command "color=[blue, green]" is not working and both lines have the same color (blue).

Some help?

Thanks a lot,



Knowing that the Taylor series for cos(x) is:
sum := sum+(-1)^i*x^(2*i)/(2*i)!

How would I write the following Maple code?

Generate an animation sequence showing the Taylor series approximation of cos(x) from N=1..10, where N is the number of terms in the series. Each subsequent frame of the animation should show a more accurate representation of cos(x) than the previous one. Plot the animation from x = -2*Pi .. 2*Pi, y = -5 .. 5

Greetings, seeking an expert to animate a plot.

see worksheet.posterior_graphs_(encapsulted)

before they play each other, each have a law (a normal distribution) plot-output 6.

after DD defeats CC, and a numerical integration is performed the new laws are given by plot-output 18.

as you can see, the laws of DD and CC are closer together.

if the calc was repeated (DD defeats CC again), the laws would be closer again.

so what i require is an animation of the new laws from game 1 to (say) game 6 (DD defeats CC every time). seeing the red and blue distributions merging would be ideal.

as an aside I heard maples FFT could simplify the complicated integration. any suggestions?


I've got the following 

tubeplot([cos(t),sin(t),t], t=0..6*Pi, radius=1/3,
style=patchnogrid, shading=Z, axes=box, orientation=[40,70]);

which gives the plot of a spiral and need to make an animation of a rotating spiral.

I've tried 

animate([cos(t),sin(t),t], t=0..6*Pi,numpoints=200,frames=20,shading=Z,axes=box) but that doesn't work. What am I doing incorrectly?



How do i use d'Alembert formula to solve,plot and animate with Maple software

I tried to find the root distritubion of a polynomial? 

When p=1, q=3, the following command works.



p:=1;   q:=3;

unitcircle:=implicitplot(x^2+y^2 = 1, x = -1 .. 1, y = -1 .. 1, scaling = constrained);

animate(complexplot,[[solve(eq, u)],style = point,symbolsize=10,color="red"],frames=50,K=-1..1,background=unitcircle, scaling=constrained, trace=20 );

However, when I tried p=2, q=3, only one root was shown on the animation.  

But   "complexplot([solve(eq,u)],style=point)"      showed  6 roots anyway.

I have no idea what was wrong. 



I've been instructed to create an animation showing the changing plots of a single square waveform using 5,10,20,40,80,160,320, and 640 terms in my Fourier series. This is my code right now: 


with (plots):
L := [seq(2^i, i = 0 .. 6)];

[1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64]

animate( plot, [2/((2*n-1)*Pi))*sin((2*n-1)*Pi*x], n=L);
Error, `)` unexpected


It doesn't work. Can anyone explain what I'm doing wrong, or how to solve my question?


I don't manage to animate a DensityPlot. Here is my program :

> restart;
> with(Statistics): with(plots):
> P := lambda->RandomVariable(Poisson(lambda)):
> animate(DensityPlot,[P(n),range=0..10],n=1..5,frames=5);

And here is the error message :

Plotting error, non-numeric vertex definition

Thanks for any help

Dear all,

I tried to display an animation which can zoom as the time goes.

But it seems that if I display several animations in one plot window, it will display the animation with the maximum view size from these animations, not separately display these animations with their view size.


There are two examples:


a1 := animate(plot, [x^2, x = -1 .. t, view = [-1 .. 1, 0 .. 1]], t = -1 .. 1);

a2 := animate(plot, [x, x = -1 .. t, view = [-1 .. 1, -1 .. 1]], t = -1 .. 1);

display(a1, a2);



animate(plot, [x^2, x = -1 .. 1, view = [t .. 1, 0 .. 1]], t = 0 .. -1)

Is it possible to zoom the animation with time? What parameter should I set?
