shadow_mark(past = TRUE, future = FALSE, ..., exclude_layer = NULL)

Arguments

past

Should raw data from earlier in the animation be shown

future

Should raw data from later in the animation be shown

...

changes to the shadow data, e.g. alpha = alpha/2 or colour = 'grey'

exclude_layer

Indexes of layers that should be excluded.

Examples

# Use any of the aesthetics to add a style to either the past or the future raw data. # Adding a grouping variable in a transition call prior to calling `shadow_mark()` will # allow transitioning through different states in time. p1 <- ggplot(airquality, aes(Day, Temp)) + geom_line(color = 'red', size = 1) + transition_time(Month) + shadow_mark(colour = 'black', size = 0.75) # animate(p1) # Add a future = TRUE argument to show data later in the animation. p2 <- ggplot(airquality, aes(Day, Temp)) + geom_line(color = 'red', size = 1) + transition_time(Month) + shadow_mark(color = 'black', size = 0.75, past = FALSE, future = TRUE) # animate(p2)
