This function has not been fully integrated into the long-term Mathematica system, and is subject to change.

is an option for cells that specifies the relative position of the next graphic to be used in an animation sequence.


  • With the setting AnimationCycleOffset->n, the n^(th) graphic from the current graphic is assumed to be next in the animation sequence. Here, n can take both positive and negative integer values. The animation starts out in the forward direction, but it reverses direction if it encounters a cell with a negative offset value.
  • With the default setting AnimationCycleOffset->0, the next cell is the one immediately below or above the current cell, depending on the current animation direction.
