Matplotlib Animation class, how to save the video with different background

This is what you have to do when saving the video:

 ani_.save('output.avi', fps=args_['fps'], savefig_kwargs = { 'transparent' : True , 'facecolor' : 'black'  }

Argument savefig_kwargs is the key parameter. It is applied to savefig which is called every time a frame is saved into video file.
