I want to animate a shapefile that has a timeline (DATE) attribute using QGIS. The [TimeManager] plugin (http://anitagraser.com/projects/time-manager/) has been installed and provides sufficient control to step down the dbf rows as expected.
However, the simple on/off display of each frame's features is not very attractive or sensible.
I want to be able to add controls for fading (to allow a feature fade to transparent over xx time) and for showing cumulative (leave previous features visible).
Is anyone aware of a plugin or styling strategy that might help improve these animations?
