I want to apologize if this being neither necessarily a minimal working example for one question nor just one question is uncomfortable. The "MWE" was created on and is designed for Linux machines including ImageMagick. The problem itself should be obvious to all users though, as the subfolder and creation of the gif are just conveniences. I have three sections concerning the different problems occuring in my attempts.
(which I was told is not doable in maple ... hence the gif)
The goal was to create an animation that zooms in on a function. As maple just wouldn't allow scaling of axis in animations I decided to export single frames and then convert those with ImageMagick. Maple offers ssystem(„...“) which allows for command line usage.
The problem (may as well be a bug) occurs when I try to export images in a for loop with exportplot(...). If the path as well as previously exported images exist, it won't output an error but still not export the desired images. Exporting frames separately works just fine, as well as doing the very same operation in a separate for loop.
(see the first red comment and export section)
After using the workaround in a second for loop. I couldn't figure out how to import the images and then create an animation from them. The main obstacle is the fact that the imported pictures are put into plot-functions.
(see the second red comment)
I would be grateful for any suggestions. Moreover I have run accross
which I could not figure out how to use by the help pages (I tried to create an avi and import that). If someone has informations on that, please share!
