Hello Januk, Thanks for your helpful suggestions on several issues. This one got me to trying some things. The following gets rid of the n also. Animate[ArrayPlot[CellularAutomaton[n, {{1}, 0}, {40, All}]], {{n, 0, ""}, 0, 255, 1, AppearanceElements -> None}, DisplayAllSteps -> True, AnimationRate -> 5, AnimationRepetitions -> 1] When I saw the empty space in the Animate frame I thought I might like to add a title as one can do with Manipulate (by inserting a String expression before the control specification). But that is not allowed in Animate and so is another difference. If one wants to output an animation with no user controls and no Animate frame one can use Animator instead. Wrapping it in a zero size Pane suppresses its display. Module[{p = 0}, Row[{ Pane[Animator[Dynamic[p], {0, 2 \[Pi]}], {0, 0}], Dynamic@Plot[Sin[x + p], {x, 0, 2 \[Pi]}, ImageSize -> 300]}] David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark From: Januk [mailto:ggroup at sarj.ca] You can specify what all is shown for a given element being animated. This probably isn't exactly what you want, but it gets close: Animate[ArrayPlot[CellularAutomaton[n, {{1}, 0}, {40, All}]], {n, 0, 255, 1, AppearanceElements -> None}] Hope that helps!
