Dear Maple users

I have had Maple creating graphics for me that I cannot do in other programs I have access to: 3D pictures of circle waves interferring or even the result of an interference pattern from a diffraction grating in Physics. But when it comes to simple animations, I am not all that impressed.

Basicly I have three complaints: 

a)  Maple seems to use a lot of space to save frame information, resulting in large filesizes.

A short remark. This would be a blog entry if those still existed.

I am comparing plot,options.

The style=point option has versatile options for symbols, their sizes, the number of points:

  , 'style' = point
  , 'numpoints' = 50
  , 'symbol' = solidcircle
  , 'symbolsize' = 8


just a comment in passing, for the record,

it appears that the numpoints plot option can be used this way:


but not in the simpler form:


that's because 1e+4 is "1000." with a dot while round(1e+4) is "1000" with no dot.

There probably are good reasons why 1e+4 is not treated as a natural number, but I haven't investigated them.
