Experimenting widget animation with Fbo

PyMT provide 2 way to make animations :

  • property animation with Animation() class, can be created with start_animation() / stop_animation(),
  • inner animation, that watch changes on a property and start automatically an animation.

They are things we cannot do actually :

  • Fade in/out a widget and their children
  • Scale the widget content

So, i was thinking to use Fbo to make more complex animation on a widget.

Before starting the how-to, here a demo-video.
