I've generated a function that alters height values of a DEM based on certain criteria. What I'm looking at doing now is animating this in ArcScene. Is there a way, in ArcGIS, for each frame to be the result of a raster calculation?

eg Frame_Timecode-->(function)-->Adjusted_DEM-->render

I'm a strong Python programmer, but have not yet done any scripting with ArcGIS, so I'm quite happy if the answer involves some coding.


So I was unable to find a way of making ArcScene conform to my desires here.

I've instead opted to convert the DEM to a NumPy array and do the animation using MatPlotLib's surface_plot.

A bit more setup required, but FAR more flexibility!
