Manim is a tool used to programmatically create precise and high-quality animations.
Based (almost) entirely on Python, manim evolved from being a powerful visualization engine for complex mathematical concepts, to a general-purpose utility that extends far beyond the realm of mathematics.
In this presentation/tutorial, we will dive into some Manim concepts, exploring how can educators, researchers, and scientist leverage it to create dynamic and engaging scientific animations.
Through this hands-on session, we will explore how to create simple animations with basic shapes, how to animate generic text or formulas, and then see some real examples (both from my personal library and some community code).
