Plotting 3D figures?

Post by Sherif »

Hi Friends,

Is there a way for plotting 3D figures in Neuron? or creating movies of 2D figures to show how the 2D relation is changing with time?

Thanks

Nothing built in to do this. You'd have to capture a series of vectors, then plot them
with incrementing vertical (and possibly horizontal) offset. Some of Alain Destexhe's
papers show graphs that were done this way.

Creating movies from NEURON

Post by apdavison »

Alain Destexhe has a demonstration of how to create movies from NEURON here:

(Unix/Linux only, although it would probably work with Mac OS X or Windows with Cygwin).

apdavison's post reminded me of something. A Canadian company called
Pedagoguery Software has a little program called Gif-gIf-giF for MSWin that
makes capturing animated gifs a piece of cake. I used to use this all the time
before I switched to Linux. You can tell it to capture a window or a region or
full screen, and you can have it capture automatically on every screen update.
Extremely simple, intuitive interface, and produces very nice animated gifs from
NEURON's space plots and shape plots. Very inexpensive --$28 US--and
well worth it. This is one piece of Windows software that I didn't feel ripped off
about paying for.
