savefig and animated elements

Hi,

I am trying to save figures where all the artists have animated =
True. The result I get (I have tried svg and png formats) is a set of
axes with labels, ticks, and grid, but no data points! I am using the
WxAgg backend.

Is this something to be expected, and if so, can anyone suggest a workaround?

Thanks,
