Save a Data Filter animation as an animated GIF

JMP has supported the reading and writing of images for some time, but it didn't support images with multiple frames until now. Version 13 of JMP now includes support for images with multiple frames, such as multi-frame TIFF files and animated GIFs. Using that functionality I wrote a JSL script that will capture each frame of a Data Filter animation and save it out to an animated GIF. This animated GIF can then be shared with someone who doesn't have JMP. All you need is an application that displays animated GIFs, such as a browser.

This example uses the Big Class data table from the Samples directory and filters through the age column. For a similar example using Bubble Plot, see Save a Bubble Plot animation as an animated GIF. NOTE: You need version 13 (or later) to run this script.


As always, let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for improvements.
