Animating Data in MATLAB

**MATLAB_MOVIES**
is a directory of MATLAB programs which
illustrate the making of animations.
If you have used MATLAB to make graphics images before, then
you will be glad to know that it isn't too hard to make an animation,
by stringing a series of related pictures together.

Of course, you need to have a series of images that do make a sensible sequence, you need to make sure that the individual images use the same picture size, plot scale, color bars and so on. Of things to worry about include figuring out what kind of movie file you want to create. But let's get on to the fun part!

Marcus Garvie has provided examples, based on a Linux version of MATLAB. To examine his information, go to Creating AVI Movies in MATLAB.

CAVITY_FLOW_MOVIE, a MATLAB program which animates the velocity solutions for the driven cavity;

CVT_MOVIE, a MATLAB program which creates an animation of the evolution of a CVT;

CVT_MOVIE2, a MATLAB program which creates a CVT movie;

CVT_MOVIE3, a MATLAB program which creates a CVT movie in a region of unusual shape;

CVT_MOVIE4, a MATLAB program which creates a CVT movie in a square, with a density function that drives points to the corners;

CVT_MOVIE5,
a MATLAB program which
repeats **cvt_movie3**, but with hexagonal
grid initialization, fixed points, and boundary projection;

FILE_NAME_SEQUENCE, a MATLAB program which demonstrates four ways to generate a sequence of filenames that can be used when generating images for an animation.

INOUT_FLOW_MOVIE, a MATLAB library which creates an animation of the velocity solutions for the INOUT cell;

PEAK_MOVIE, a MATLAB program which creates the pieces of an animation, one frame at a time. Each frame is independently created and saved as a JPEG file.

TCELL_FLOW_MOVIE, a MATLAB library which creates an animation of the velocity solutions for the T cell;

TETRAHEDRON_SLICE_ANIMATE, a MATLAB program which is given a tetrahedron and a vector, and displays an evenly spaced sequence of planes that intersect the tetrahedron and are normal to the vector.
