# What’s new¶

## Usage changes of new version manim¶

There are many changes in the new version of manim, and here are only the changes that may have an impact at the code writing level.

Some of the changes here may not have any major impact on the use, and some changes that affect the use are not mentioned below.

This document is for reference only, see the source code for details.

`Animation`

Added

`Fade`

as the parent class of`FadeIn`

and`FadeOut`

`FadeIn`

and`FadeOut`

can be passed in`shift`

and`scale`

parametersDeleted

`FadeInFrom, FadeInFromDown, FadeOutAndShift, FadeOutAndShiftDown, FadeInFromLarge`

, these can be used`FadeIn, FadeOut`

to achieve the same effect more easilyAdded

`FadeTransform`

to cross fade between two objects, and subclass`FadeTransformPieces`

Added

`CountInFrom(decimal_mob, source_number=0)`

to count`decimal_mob`

from`source_number`

to the current value`Rotating`

can directly pass in`angle`

and`axis`

without writing keywords`angle=, axis=`

`Rotate`

has become a subclass of`Rotating`

, and the distortion effect in`Transform`

will not appearRemoved

`MoveCar`

animationAdded

`TransformMatchingShapes(mobject, target_mobject)`

and`TransformMatchingTex(mobject, target_mobject)`

`Camera`

Removed all camera classes except

`Camera`

(`MappingCamera`

,`MovingCamera`

,`MultiCamera`

) and all functions in`ThreeDCamera`

Implemented

`CameraFrame`

(as a`Mobject`

)Can be called by

`self.camera.frame`

in`Scene`

All methods of

`Mobject`

can be used, such as`.shift()`

,`.scale()`

, etc.Call

`.to_default_state()`

to place in the default positionSet the Euler angles of the camera by

`.set_euler_angles(theta, phi, gamma)`

Set three single Euler angles by

`.set_theta(theta)`

,`.set_phi(phi)`

,`.set_gamma(gamma)`

Use

`.increment_theta(dtheta)`

,`.increment_phi(dphi)`

,`.increment_gamma(gamma)`

to increase the three Euler angles by a certain value. Can be used to realize automatic rotation`self.camera.frame.add_updater(lambda mob, dt: mob.increment_theta(0.1 * dt))`

`Camera`

adds a light source, which is a`Point`

, which can be called by`self.camera.light_source`

in`Scene`

to move and so on. The default position is`(- 10, 10, 10)`

Delete

`Container`

`Mobject`

`svg`

relatedAdded

`Checkmark`

and`Exmark`

Some unnecessary classes have been removed from

`drawings.py`

is renamed to`Tex`

,`TextMobject`

is renamed to`TexText`

`font_size`

has been added to`Tex`

,`TexText`

and`Text`

`Tex`

and`TexText`

added`isolate`

, which is a list, which will be automatically split

Mobject

`types`

Added a new class

`Surface`

, which is the parent class of`ParametricSurface`

and`TexturedSurface`

.Added the group

`SGroup`

for`Surface`

Added

, where`uv_surface`

is a`Surface`

,`image_file`

is the image to be posted, and`dark_image_file`

is the image to be posted in the dark (default and`image_file`

is the same)Deleted

`Mobject1D`

,`Mobject2D`

,`PointCloudDot`

Added

`DotCloud`

(a`PMobject`

), which has been greatly optimizedRemoved

`AbstractImageMobject`

,`ImageMobjectFromCamera`

Removed

`sheen`

from`VMobject`

`Mobject`

Added

`gloss`

and`shadow`

, which are the numbers between`[0, 1]`

respectively. There are four methods of`.get_gloss()`

,`.get_shadow()`

,`.set_shadow(shadow)`

Added

`.get_grid(n_rows, n_cols)`

`.set_color_by_code(glsl_code)`

to use GLSL code to change the colorAdded

`.set_color_by_xyz_func(glsl_snippet, min_value=-5.0, max_value=5.0, colormap="viridis")`

to pass in GLSL expression in the form of`x,y,z`

, the return value should be a floating point number

Coordinate system (including

`Axes`

,`ThreeDAxes`

,`NumberPlane`

,`ComplexPlane`

)No longer use

`x_min`

,`x_max`

,`y_min`

,`y_max`

, but use`x_range`

,`y_range`

, containing three numbers`np.array([ Minimum, maximum, step size])`

Added the abbreviation

`.i2gp(x, graph)`

of`.input_to_graph_point(x, graph)`

Added some functions of the original

`GraphScene`

Added

`.get_v_line(point)`

,`.get_h_line(point)`

to return the line from`point`

to the two coordinate axes, and specify the line type through the keyword argument of`line_func`

(default`DashedLine`

)Added

`.get_graph_label(graph, label, x, direction, buff, color)`

to return the label added to the imageAdded

`.get_v_line_to_graph(x, graph)`

,`.get_h_line_to_graph(x, graph)`

to return the line from the point with the abscissa of`x`

on the`graph`

`Axes`

original`.get_coordinate_labels(x_values, y_values)`

method was renamed to`.add_coordinate_labels(x_values, y_values)`

(but it is not added to the screen)`.add_coordinate_labels(numbers)`

of`ComplexPlane`

will directly add the coordinates to the screen

`NumberLine`

No longer use

`x_min`

,`x_max`

,`tick_frequency`

, but use`x_range`

, which is an array containing three numbers`[min, max, step]`

The original

`label_direction`

attribute changed to the`line_to_number_direction`

attributeReplace

`tip_width`

and`tip_height`

with`tip_config`

(dictionary) attributesThe original

`exclude_zero_from_default`

attribute is modified to the`numbers_to_exclude`

attribute (default is None)The original

`.add_tick_marks()`

method

Three-dimensional objects

Added

`SurfaceMesh(uv_surface)`

, pass in a`Surface`

to generate its uv mesh`ParametricSurface`

no longer uses`u_min, u_max, v_min, v_max`

, but instead uses`u_range, v_range`

, which is a tuple (`(min, max)`

), and`resolution`

, the usage remains unchanged

Other objects

`ParametricFunction`

is renamed to`ParametricCurve`

. Instead of using`t_min, t_max, step_size`

, use`t_range`

, which is an array of three numbers (`[t_min, t_max, step_size]`

).`dt`

, that is, only a third-order Bezier curve is supported`Square`

can be initialized directly by passing in`side_length`

instead of using the keyword`side_length=`

`always_redraw(func, *args, **kwargs)`

supports incoming parameters`*args, **kwargs`

The

`digit_to_digit_buff`

property of`DecimalNumber`

has been renamed to`digit_buff_per_font_unit`

, and the`.scale()`

`GraphScene`

(moved to`once_useful_constructs`

),`MovingCameraScene`

,`ReconfigurableScene`

,`SceneFromVideo`

, and`ThreeDScene`

. Because these can basically be achieved by adjusting`CameraFrame`

(`self.camera.frame`

)Currently

`SampleSpaceScene`

and`VectorScene`

have not been changed for the new version, so it is not recommended to use (only`Scene`

is recommended)Fix the export of gif, just use the

`-i`

option directlyAdded the

,`DARK_GREY`

,`DARKER_GREY`

), added a new series of gray`GREY_A`

~`GREY_E`
