Video Recording made easy - The tool you need for animations using Matplotlib, Plotly and other plotting libraries.

Project description

build status python 3.6 license apache


You can find the detailed documentation here:


The framework is available at the PyPi Repository:

pip install -U pyrecorder


It’s as simple as it should be. Initialize a Video object with a Recorder and record the current plots by calling record(). Finally, close the video object with close() and you are good to go and watch your video.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

from pyrecorder.recorders.file import File
from import Video

fname = "video.mp4"
vid = Video(File(fname))

for k in range(10):
    fig, (ax1, ax2) = plt.subplots(2)

    X = np.random.random((100, 2))
    ax1.scatter(X[:, 0], X[:, 1], color="green")

    X = np.random.random((100, 2))
    ax2.scatter(X[:, 0], X[:, 1], color="red")
