|During our search for alternative optimization paths for Linac900Ext10d, I made a small tool that fetches the Muon yield vs. Mpts calculation graphs and makes an animation of the progress.|
Linac900Ext10d is interesting, but the fun lattice to watch is Linac900Ext6tc2
|Very cool - a shame the Flash Player's progress bar hides the date at the bottom, though.|
|It's a shame...|
I might try other video formats than flash, but haven't investigated the possibilities.
I would appreciate hints if someone has experience in something better

|Just use virtualdub. Make a cron script to save the lattice image to png every 3 hours. Name them sequentially. Open the first image in vdub. It automatically loads the seq. images. Set fps to 29.97 and crop height to 1004 from 1005 (using filters-> null transform). Set as compression x264 (need to install via sourceforge). Do not forget to optimize for 'animation'. Save as AVI. Done.|
This will give much higher quality animation. Probably also smoother
@Stephen, is it possible to replot all the images with your script by simply calling an url (with right query params)?

|No I don't archive every single image produced! Enough of my HDD is filled with just storing the results...|
|runesk - can you drop me an email, please?|
