AnimatedImage

AnimatedImage[{image1,image2,}]

generates an animation whose frames are the successive imagei.

AnimatedImage[file]

represents an animated image from file.

Details and Options

  • AnimatedImage can be used to display a list of images as a dynamic animation. Animated images are typically stored in formats such as GIF and PNG.
  • In AnimatedImage[file], file can be any of the following:
  • File["file"] or "file"file name, searched for on $Path
    URL["url"] or "url"HTTP, HTTPS or FTP URL
    CloudObject[]a cloud object
    LocalObject[]a local object
    Video[]a video object
  • The syntax AnimatedImage[][prop] can be used to extract specific properties.
  • The following properties are supported:
  • "AnimationRepetitions"number of times to repeat the animation
    "Channels"number of image channels
    "ColorSpace"the color space to assume for data
    "DataType"underlying data type
    "FrameRate"frame rate to use
    "ImageCount"number of images
    "ImageList"all images
    "Interleaving"whether data is stored interleaved
    "RasterSize"pixel dimensions of images
    "TotalDuration"the total duration
    "Transparency"whether the image has transparency (alpha) channel
  • The following options can be specified:
  • AnimationRepetitionsInfinityhow many times to run before stopping
    AnimationRunningTruewhether the animation is running
    DefaultDurationAutomaticthe default duration in seconds
    FrameRateAutomaticthe rate at which images are displayed
    ImageSizeInheritedthe overall image size to use
    RasterSizeAutomaticdimensions of image frames
    RefreshRateAutomaticthe default number of times per second to refresh
  • Information for AnimatedImage includes the following properties:
  • "AnimationRepetitions"number of times to repeat the animation
    "Channels"number of image channels
    "ColorSpace"the color space to assume for data
    "DataType"underlying data type
    "FrameRate"frame rate to use
    "ImageCount"number of images
    "ImageDimensions"pixel dimensions
    "Interleaving"whether data is stored interleaved
    "RasterSize"pixel dimensions of images
    "TotalDuration"the total duration
    "Transparency"whether the image has transparency (alpha) channel
  • Basic image editing functions that support AnimatedImage are: ColorConvert, ImageCrop, ImagePad, ImageReflect, ImageResize, ImageRotate, ImageTake and ImageTrim.
  • Use Video and ListAnimate to convert an animated image to the corresponding objects.
