TraMineR has no multichannel object.
seqdistmc function does not create a multichannel sequence object but computes a matrix of pairwise dissimilarities between multichannel sequences, which you pass as a list of state sequence objects (each being a channel). This matrix can be used for dissimilarity based analyses such as clustering or discrepancy analysis.
If I understand well, what you want is displaying the list of state sequence objects. Currently there is no function to display such a collection in a single step. You have to do that yourself. As an example, I use the three channels created in the example of the
seqdistmc online help.
## Building one channel per type of event left, children or married
bf <- as.matrix(biofam[, 10:25])
children <- bf==4 | bf==5 | bf==6
married <- bf == 2 | bf== 3 | bf==6
left <- bf==1 | bf==3 | bf==5 | bf==6
## Building sequence objects
child.seq <- seqdef(children)
marr.seq <- seqdef(married)
left.seq <- seqdef(left)
layout you can indeed use par(mfrow=c(3,2)) to split the graphical area. In any case you have to specify
withlegend=FALSE and display the legend separately as in the example.
Hope this helps.
