I understand that as of a year ago, the TimeManager plugin was not intended to handle more than a handfull of rasters. This post is in blind hope that this has changed!
I'm trying to create a map with animated rasters and so far I'm having more success with TimeManager in QGIS than with my approach in GRASS (see related threads: 1, 2 on
ps.map problems). I can create an animation with a few frames by using TimeManager, but the approach won't scale to thousands of frames as needed for two reasons:
- I have to add the layers one at a time.
- I have to enter the start time for each frame in the TimeManager panel. I had thought that it could automatically get the start time from the file names, which I created in the format YYYY-MM-DD.
I understand that raster support is new and somewhat less developed than vector support, but I'm hopeful that there's a way to automate this, which I have simply missed.
