I downloaded the Windows installer and installed matplotlib. I tried to run one of the examples from the examples directory animate_decay and got the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Bin\Python Scripts\plot_decay.py", line 3, in <module>

import matplotlib.animation as animation

ImportError: No module named animation

What did I do wrong?


Chances are, an older version of matplotlib is still installed. Clean out all matplotlib installs and reinstall the current one. (Note: need v1.1.0 and greater for the animation module).

Also, please keep in mind the animation module is very much an experiment and we greatly welcome feedback on how it works for you!
