napari-animation is a plugin for making animations in napari.


This napari plugin was generated with Cookiecutter using with @napari's cookiecutter-napari-plugin template.

It is built off of great work from @guiwitz in naparimovie which was initially submitted to napari in PR#851.


Overview

napari-animation provides a framework for the creation of animations in napari and features:

  • an easy to use GUI for interactive creation of animations
  • Python tools for programmatic creation of animations

This plugin is currently pre-release and under active development. APIs are likely to change before it's first 0.0.1 release, but feedback and contributions are welcome.

Installation

You can clone this repository with install locally with

pip install -e .

Examples

Examples can be found in our examples folder. Simple examples for both interactive and headless use of the plugin follow.

Interactive

napari-animation can be used interactively by creating an AnimationWidget from a napari Viewer and adding it to the viewer as a dock widget.

from napari_animation import AnimationWidget

animation_widget = AnimationWidget(viewer)
viewer.window.add_dock_widget(animation_widget, area='right')

AnimationWidget image

Headless

napari-animation can also be run headless, allowing for reproducible, scripted creation of animations.

from napari_animation import Animation

animation = Animation(viewer)

viewer.dims.ndisplay = 3
viewer.camera.angles = (0.0, 0.0, 90.0)
animation.capture_keyframe()
viewer.camera.zoom = 2.4
animation.capture_keyframe()
viewer.camera.angles = (-7.0, 15.7, 62.4)
animation.capture_keyframe(steps=60)
viewer.camera.angles = (2.0, -24.4, -36.7)
animation.capture_keyframe(steps=60)
viewer.reset_view()
viewer.camera.angles = (0.0, 0.0, 90.0)
animation.capture_keyframe()
animation.animate('demo.mov', canvas_only=False)

Is everything animate-able?

Unfortunately, not yet! Currently differences in the following objects are tracked by the Animation class

  • Viewer.camera
  • Viewer.dims
  • Layer.scale
  • Layer.translate
  • Layer.rotate
  • Layer.shear
  • layer.opacity
  • Layer.blending
  • Layer.visible

Support for more layer attributes will be added in future releases.

Contributing

Contributions are very welcome. Tests and additional infrastructure are being setup.
