Hey, I’ve been at this for a couple hours so hopefully y’all have better luck. I am trying to animate a data set. I know the computations and data set are right because when I plot each frame individually I get the desired result. When I try to animate, however, I get a mess (so I think it has to be in how I’m animating it). The output should look like fluid rotating. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Code:

```
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
from scipy.integrate import odeint
from matplotlib.animation import FuncAnimation
from functools import partial
#system
def van_der_pol(coords, t, mu, evens, odds, ones):
x, y = coords*evens, coords*odds
x_shift = np.roll(x, 1) #for use in computation
y_prime = mu*(1-x_shift**2)*y-x_shift
return np.roll(y, -1)+y_prime
#initialize window for blitting
def init(fig, axes, scatter):
plt.xlim([-3.0, 3.0])
plt.ylim([-3.0, 3.0])
return scatter,
#animates one frame
def animate(t, sols, scatter, odds, evens):
print(t)
scatter.set_offsets(np.array([np.trim_zeros(sols[t]*evens), np.trim_zeros(sols[t]*odds)]))
return scatter,
#constants
mu = 0.5
#initial data
M = 10
axis = np.linspace(-3.0, 3.0, M)
init_conds = np.array([(x, y) for x in axis for y in axis])
init_conds = init_conds.reshape(2*M**2)
evens, odds = np.array([1 if i % 2 == 0 else 0 for i in range(2*M**2)]), np.array([1 if i % 2 == 1 else 0 for i in range(2*M**2)]) #will be used to extract the x and y coordinates
ones = np.ones(2*M**2)
#solving
total = 10.0
delta = 0.1
N = int(total/delta)
t = np.linspace(0.0, total, N)
sols = odeint(van_der_pol, init_conds, t, args=(mu, evens, odds, ones))
#setup
fig, axes = plt.figure(), plt.axes(frameon=True)
scatter = plt.scatter([], [], animated=True)
#animation
anim = FuncAnimation(fig, func=animate, frames=N, init_func=partial(init, fig, axes, scatter), blit=True, fargs=(sols, scatter, odds, evens), repeat=False)
anim.save("out.mp4", fps=40)
plt.show()
```
