Our team is exploring ways to effectively show transitional effects in
graphs (i.e., bars, lines, pies, etc...). That is, as the underyling
graph data change in realtime, we want to show the transition taking place,
through animation. We're using Flash for prototyping.
We have identified a few hopefuls (filling/emptying, fade in/out, various
types of highlighting), and are curious about what others have done in this
Also, we're trying our best to avoid effects that compete with each other,
distract, or are otherwise perceptually or cognitively challenging, while at
the same time trying to maximize our ability to convey useful
information...which, as it turns out, isn't very easy.
Thanks in advance,
