Streeb, Dirk: L. J. Trevena et al. [2013]: Presenting Quantitative Information about Decision Outcomes: A Risk Communication Primer for Patient Decision Aid Developers doi:10.1186/1472-6947-13-S2-S7 - 19.03.18 07:22 (+-) Ambivalent One or more subsections p. 10 However, evidence is lacking to determine whether the techniques allowed by new technologies provide a net positive experience. Preliminary evidence suggests that, unless the motion cues reinforce the most critical gist message (e.g., the accumulation of risk over time), there remains significant risk that interactive or animated formats may degrade knowledge versus evidence-based static formats.
Streeb, Dirk: H. C. Purchase et al. [2008]: Theoretical Foundations of Information Visualization doi:10.1007/978-3-540-70956-5_3 - 12.03.18 10:35 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 57 Finally, the use of animation to communicate information in an incremental fashion can be quite effective; it is lossy communication, as viewers quickly forget some of what they have seen, but the ability to replay the animation can replace some of this lost information.
Streeb, Dirk: P. Parsons and K. Sedig [2014]: Adjustable Properties of Visual Representations: Improving the Quality of Human-Information Interaction doi:10.1002/asi.23002 - 08.03.18 14:09 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 467 VRs [Visual representations] that exhibit movement can effectively illustrate structural, functional, and procedural relationships among encoded information items.

Hegarty [2011]: The Cognitive Science of Visual-Spatial Displays: Implications for Design doi:10.1111/j.1756-8765.2011.01150.x - 02.03.18 13:46 (+-) Ambivalent One or more paragraphs p. 455 However, in a review of several papers comparing animated to static displays, Tversky et al. (2002) indicated that there was no advantage to animations over static displays, making the point that animations are often ineffective because they are too fast or too complex.
