    Hello, I'm making some animations with brainrender and had a question regarding actor labels.

    When I add a brain region as an actor, is it possible to assign a custom label so that in the rendered scene, I can show an abbreviation to label each brain region? I would like to use the label 'DG' for the brainrender.Actor: DG-brain region I show below:

    brainrender.Actor: root-brain region,
    brainrender.Actor: DG-brain region

    hey, yep you can add labels quite easily, I've added an example to the repository: https://github.com/brainglobe/brainrender/blob/master/examples/add_labels.py
    if something doesn't look right you might want to try upgrading to the latest version of brainrender (

    Worked great, thank you! Is there any way to have the labels rotate dynamically with changing camera positions during an animation?

    Is there a way to export screenshots as vectors instead of PNG?
