I am trying to create a GIF animation in SAS studio 3.8. However, I keep getting the warning:
WARNING: RTF destination does not support GIF images. Using the default static format.
Due to this, I am only producing the individual graphs and not the GIF. Here is my code that came from an example on SAS Blogs:
ods html; data stocks; set sashelp.stocks; Month = month(date); /* 1, 2, 3, ..., 12 */ Year = year(date); /* 1986, 1987, ..., 2005 */ run; proc sort data=stocks; by date; run; ods graphics / imagefmt=GIF width=4in height=3in; /* each image is 4in x 3in GIF */ options papersize=('4 in', '3 in') /* set size for images */ nodate nonumber /* do not show date, time, or frame number */ animduration=0.5 animloop=yes noanimoverlay /* animation details */ printerpath=gif animation=start; /* start recording images to GIF */ ods printer file='C:\Users\lindsey.nelson\Gifs'; /* images saved into animated GIF */ ods html select none; /* suppress screen output */ proc sgplot data=stocks; title "Stock Performance"; by year; /* create 20 images, one for each year */ series x=month y=close / group=stock; /* each image is a time series */ xaxis integer values=(1 to 12); yaxis min=10 max=210 grid; /* set common vertical scale for all graphs */ run; ods html select all; ods listing; /* restore screen output */ options printerpath=gif animation=stop; /* stop recording images */ ods printer close; ods html close;
