Creates Beautifully Animated Charts
Scatter Charts, Bar Charts, Histograms & Dot Plots
Popcharts is an easy to use Mac application to create beautifully animated charts and export them to high quality video.
Open up a CSV file, map the chart parameters to columns in the CSV file and you are done.
If you want to adjust some aspect of the chart, Popcharts makes this really easy because
it will resize all other elements in the chart to accomodate your changes. When you are
done creating your presentation, exporting it to a high quality video file is only a
Animate up to five dimensions simultaneously!
Let your data tell a story! Animated scatter charts (or motion charts), allow you to animate point size,
shape and color in addition to their X and Y positions.
Color can be applied using a gradient, which allows it to change over time or it can be assigned
manually. There are several built-in gradients to choose from or you can create your own. You can
also animate the size of data points as well as assign them a custom shape.
Popcharts handles missing values gracefully by either hiding them or interpolating between them.
To make the animation even smoother try using path smoothing, which will use a bezier-spline for
interpolating between known values.
You can even animate the sort order!
Sometimes the relative order of data elements is more important than values themselves.
Bar charts can animate the sort order of time series and so can histograms and dot plots.
The sort animation can either be instantaneous or slowed down a little for a more dramatic
effect. You can also adjust the the thickness of the bars and the gap between them to
improve the esthetics and achieve that perfect look.
Lots More Features!
Popcharst goes out of its way to make your life easy.
If you can get your data into a CSV format (and who can't) then you can use Popcharts to create beautiful videos with it.
This is a Mac App. We export high quality video to mp4 using the excellent H.264 codec.
Resize anything and watch all other elements in the chart adapt their size to fit in the remaining space.
Change the title font and watch all the fonts in your chart change accordingly. Turn the feature off for that special element requiring a different type.
If your column names fall within a list of predefined names then Popcharts can automatically map chart parameters for you.
You would prefer a one minute presetation instead of two, just type "1m" in the duration field and that's it.
Use the built-in gradients editor to create you own color scales.
You can rotate the axis labels to make them easier to read.
Show time progression in seconds, data value or percentage, which ever one makes more sense to you.
Use Cut & Paste to create as many static images as you need.
And any number of grid lines and even make them maksing.
Add a bit of gaussian blur, bloom filter or depth shadows for a more dramatic effect.
