I love thinking about creative ways of presenting results. As the number of dimensions increases, I find myself using animation as a way to convey one of the dimensions, oftentimes time. In MATLAB, it's easy to make animations, but when I need to visualize data on a website, I have to get creative. The description Kevin has on his entry page accurately explains the kinds of things I need to be concerned about when creating animations for web pages. To summarize,
- Movie files may not play well in some platforms without an appropriate software.
- Movie files tend to be large, especially when you try to make them cross-platform.
- The image quality may suffer due to video compression.
His function has many options to customize the animation and the webpage, including frame delay controls. He provides plenty of documentation and examples to help you use his function.
