FuncAnimation and persistence

Hi all,

I realize that once I create a FuncAnimation object, I must assign it
to a label to make it persist [1]. Is this going to remain the case in
the foreseeable future? Is there a better way of doing this now?

Thanks,
Amit.

There is no better way to do this at the moment. There have been talk of integrating the animation interface into Figure objects so that creating an animation would be similar to creating any other type of plot, with references to the animation object stored in the figure like any other Artist.

The basic rule of thumb is, if you are using a constructor, then assign the constructed object somewhere!

I hope that clears it up!

Thanks a lot Benjamin! Very helpful indeed.
