Configuring a Presentation

You may configure and control AnyLogic presentation using the presentation settings of your experiment. Namely, you can set up the presentation update rate and toggle the anti-aliasing option on/off. 

Anti-aliasing

AnyLogic presentation supports anti-aliasing – one of the most important techniques in making graphics more smooth and pleasing to the eye. Anti-aliasing is a process of smoothing the drawing of points or lines that would otherwise appear jagged. However, note that more time is spent on rendering the presentation with the anti-aliasing set.

To enable/disable anti-aliasing
  1. In the Projects view, select the experiment you are working with.
  2. In the Advanced section of the experiment's Properties, select/clear the Enable anti-aliasing checkbox.

Presentation update rate

AnyLogic enables you to set up the presentation update rate. The greater update rate you specify, the smoother presentation will appear. However, presentation rendering takes longer, and frequent presentation update will slow the model simulation. So, choose between smooth presentation and fast simulation and set up the presentation update rate according to your needs. 

You can explicitly specify fixed update rate in frames per second. Alternatively, you can specify adaptive update rate. Adaptive update rate will be recalculated during the model simulation to fix up the specified ratio between simulation speed and presentation smoothness.

To set presentation update rate
  1. In the Projects view, select the experiment you are working with.
  2. In the Advanced section of the experiment's Properties, set the presentation update rate.
  3. To define the fixed update rate, clear the Enable adaptive frame management checkbox and explicitly specify the update rate (in frames per second) in Frames per second combo box. 
  4. Otherwise, to define adaptive update rate, select the Enable adaptive frame management checkbox and choose the ratio between simulation speed and presentation smoothness from the CPU ratio (Presentation:Simulation) combo box.
