Smooth animation pressure/isobar and wind
I come back to this topic.
So the time animation for cloud (satellite) is available and frankly, exceptional.
I wonder what logic was implemented in the coding to create the frames between two different satellite image (are some ML algorithm used? Just curious)
Can something be done also for wind and pressure isolines?
In the original topic, I referred to some time animation of wind/isobars used in tv weather forecast. I guess those animation would be rendered not in real time.
When I play with wind layout, the wind field animation shift from one time step to the following in an abrupt way (basically I see for a fraction of a sec the wind lines disappearing and then rematerialising in the new wind streamline field.
Having intermediate streamline field created and having a visual transition not fading our and in between two frames would make the time animation similar to what in the reference videos I shared.
For isolines (pressure or whatever) that may be more challenging as it looks to me the isoline shall be animated in time not using a frame approach rather really moving and changing the isoline in time as a function of it. Again talking not knowing the limitation of the real time rendering engine you use.
But it would be fantastic just in depicting time changes in wind, pressure field. And very powerful in the sense that these animation could be used by TV, weather forecast.
Seems you are not a Premium user as the label is not shown near your name.
Windy Premium users see the animation of default model (ECMWF) smoother than you do. For Premium users, the animation is incremented in 1 hour steps while for you it is in 3 hour steps. You get 3 times less pictures for the same time interval, for instance for one day you get 8 frames instead of 24. Without Premium the visual transition is more jerky.
@idefix37 No I am not a Premium user. Do you have a video of what Premium users can see then? The suggestion is still applicable for isolines (for Premium users of course... ;). Thanks.
No I don’t have a video.
