ManimBanner

Qualified name: manim.mobject.logo.ManimBanner

class ManimBanner(dark_theme=True)[source]

Bases: manim.mobject.types.vectorized_mobject.VGroup

Convenience class representing Manim’s banner.

Can be animated using custom methods.

Parameters

dark_theme (bool) – If True (the default), the dark theme version of the logo (with light text font) will be rendered. Otherwise, if False, the light theme version (with dark text font) is used.

Examples

Example: DarkThemeBanner

from manim import *

class DarkThemeBanner(Scene):
    def construct(self):
        banner = ManimBanner()
        self.play(banner.create())
        self.play(banner.expand())
        self.wait()
        self.play(Unwrite(banner))

Example: LightThemeBanner

from manim import *

class LightThemeBanner(Scene):
    def construct(self):
        self.camera.background_color = "#ece6e2"
        banner = ManimBanner(dark_theme=False)
        self.play(banner.create())
        self.play(banner.expand())
        self.wait()
        self.play(Unwrite(banner))

Methods

create

The creation animation for Manim’s logo.

expand

An animation that expands Manim’s logo into its banner.

scale

Scale the banner by the specified scale factor.

Attributes

animate

Used to animate the application of a method.

animation_overrides

depth

The depth of the mobject.

height

The height of the mobject.

width

The width of the mobject.

create(run_time=2)[source]

The creation animation for Manim’s logo.

Parameters

run_time (float) – The run time of the animation.

Returns

An animation to be used in a Scene.play() call.

Return type

AnimationGroup

expand(run_time=1.5, direction='center')[source]

An animation that expands Manim’s logo into its banner.

The returned animation transforms the banner from its initial state (representing Manim’s logo with just the icons) to its expanded state (showing the full name together with the icons).

See the class documentation for how to use this.

Note

Before calling this method, the text “anim” is not a submobject of the banner object. After the expansion, it is added as a submobject so subsequent animations to the banner object apply to the text “anim” as well.

Parameters
  • run_time (float) – The run time of the animation.

  • direction – The direction in which the logo is expanded.

Returns

An animation to be used in a Scene.play() call.

Return type

Examples

Example: ExpandDirections

from manim import *

    def construct(self):
        banners = [ManimBanner().scale(0.5).shift(UP*x) for x in [-2, 0, 2]]
        self.play(
            banners[0].expand(direction="right"),
            banners[1].expand(direction="center"),
            banners[2].expand(direction="left"),
        )
