I am trying to create a gif with 100 frames, which I assume shouldn’t be a problem if I code it correctly. However, the following code slows to a crawl, and seems to cause a memory leak.
using Plots using ProgressMeter u = rand(100,100) hmap = heatmap(zeros(size(u)), clim=(0,1)) p = Progress(1000, 1) anim = Animation() for i=1:1000 u = rand(100,100) heatmap!(hmap,u) if mod(i,10) == 0 frame(anim) end next!(p) end gif(anim, "/tmp/anim_fps30.gif", fps=30)
Have I made a critical error in my coding? Is there a way to get frames for the animation without holding them all in memory? Thanks.
