Animation through Sequence

The user can generate graph animation using a data sequence or graph sequence. There are two closely related but subtly different ways of creating graph animation using a data sequence or graph sequence. We will discuss them the following two sections.

Animation Using a Data Sequence

When a data sequence is selected as the active document, the Data Sequence tool on the ToolBox can be used to open the Data Sequence dialog box with which the user can play back all data tables in the data sequence: each data table will be made the current data table of the data sequence sequentially for a specific amount of time. After changing the current data table of the data sequence, DataScene automatically refreshes the dependent graphs - graphs that use the data sequence as their data source - with the data in the current data table of the data sequence. As a result, the user will see that all dependent graphs of the data sequence keep plotting data in each of the data tables of the data sequence and a graph animation is thus created. 

Animation Using a Graph Sequence

When a graph sequence is selected as the active document, the Graph Sequence tool on the ToolBox can be used to open the Graph Sequence dialog box with which the user can create graph animation. Animation through graph sequence works in the following way: when the user clicks the Start/Resume button on the Graph Sequence dialog box, DataScene automatically finds out all data sequences that are used as the data sources of the active graph. For each of these source data sequences, DataScene changes the current data table sequentially in it and refreshes all its dependent graph sequences. After having updated the current data tables of all the source data sequences and refreshed their dependent graphs, DataScene pauses for a specific time interval and then starts the whole process again. It is obvious that any graph sequence document (including the active graph sequence) that depends on one of the source data sequences will be animated in this process.
