CyAnimator

Simple key-frame animation for Cytoscape
Categories: animation, visualization
CyAnimator is a Cytoscape app for creating simple animations of Cytoscape networks. The tool allows you to take a series of snapshots (CyAnimator calls them frames) of Cytoscape networks. For example, the first frame might be of a network zoomed out and the second frame might focus on a specific group of nodes. Once these two frames are captured by the tool, it can animate between them by interpolating the changes in location, zoom, node color, node size, edge thickness, presence or absence of annotations, etc. Detailed instructions on how to use CyAnimator are available at: http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/cytoscape/CyAnimator/index.shtml CyAnimator features include: * Simple interface for adjusting animation durations -- simply drag the thumbnail on the timeline * Ability to interpolate colors, positions, custom graphics, widths, transparency, and annotations * Movies may be saved as MP4, animated GIFs, or simply save all of the interpolated frames * Timelines are saved as part of the session

Release Notes

Minor update to fix a race condition and several crashes with Cy3d (which is not yet released).

2.0.2

Works with Cytoscape 3.3

Release Notes

Made the following changes: 1. CyAnimator *should* work with renderers other than ding 1. Interpolating frames only occurs when you play or record. This makes the UI much more responsive 1. Moving a frame to the edge of the timeline will cause the timeline to scroll 1. Added a toggle button to control whether the animation loops or not.

2.0.1

Works with Cytoscape 3.3

Release Notes

Fixes a bug in annotation handling that resulted annotations being recreated for every interpolated frame.

2.0.0

Works with Cytoscape 3.3

Release Notes

CyAnimator 2.0 represents a significant enhancement of CyAnimator. New features include: 1. Support for changes is custom graphics by using crossfade 1. Redesigned (and simplified) main dialog. Frames are now shown on a time line and may be dragged to adjust the time between frames 1. Timeline and associated frames are saved in the session file 1. New backend renderer for movie creation. 1. Improved support for animating between networks with new or deleted nodes/edges. CyAnimator works with Cytoscape 3.3, which was required to support better interpolations of annotations.
