Hi Michale and others,

Many thanks for the information about the visualization of igraph.
I have recently been looking for ways of creating movies from
igraph object.  But, the problem is I have implemented a software in C++.
Furthermore, I do not know much about python.

For your information, in my graph, the network remains as it is but the color of the nodes change till the network reaches a some kind of convergence (e.g. all nodes having the same color).

So, I am still thinking about using SoNIA for creating the visualisation.
Your tutorial on this was very much helpful. But, I have not got that working 
as I wanted. Because, I have not managed to keep the network static using
SoNIA. It moves around and sometimes it just shrinks to a corner. But, I want the network to stay still while the colours of the vertices change. Lack of documentation
for SoNIA means I have to spent a lot of time figuring out what is going on.

I considered UbiGRAPH before which was recommended to me in this
group. But, I am not interested to view the graph in real-time any more. Because it takes hours for the convergence of my network. Besides, as you mentioned in your 
article, limited licence for the software poses another problem.

My question is, do you think there is anyway that I can use your python class
along with my C++ software which uses igraph-C? Or else, I would appreciate 
 any other ideas for visualizing the network in my case.

 In case anyone was interested, I wanted to mention that I released a
little bit of code that shows how to create an animation using igraph
and a few additional libraries:

You can see some examples here:


 I wanted to release this because the alternative, Sonia, simply
cannot handle large or complicated graphs.  Ubigraph is also protected
by a number of license and rendering issues.

 The hard work was of course down my Gabor and Tamas to make igraph
so simple to use!
