animating contours

Hi,

I’m trying to create 2D
animations using contours. Is there a recommended way to do this? I was
hoping to follow the same route as in the dynamic_image_gtkagg.py
example, but for some reason set_array doesn’t work for me with
contour. It doesn’t produce any error, but the figure just doesn’t get
updated after calling canvas.draw().

Matplotlib version:
0.87.7

Thanks,

Yoav

The contour routine does not have update functionality similar to that of an image; you have no choice but to generate a new ContourSet object each time.

OK, thanks for the
info. Is imshow currently the only array imaging routine that supports
this functionality?

Thanks again,

Yoav
