Convert Multiframe Image to Movie

To create a MATLAB® movie from a multiframe image array, use the immovie function. This example creates a movie from a multiframe indexed image.

mov = immovie(X,map);

In the example, X is a four-dimensional array of images that you want to use for the movie.

To play the movie, use the implay function.


This example loads the multiframe image mri.tif and makes a movie out of it. It won't do any good to show the results here, so try it out; it's fun to watch.

mri = uint8(zeros(128,128,1,27)); 
for frame=1:27
	[mri(:,:,:,frame),map] = imread('mri.tif',frame);

mov = immovie(mri,map);

    Note   To view a MATLAB movie, you must have MATLAB software installed. To make a movie that can be run outside the MATLAB environment, use the VideoWriter class to create a movie in a standard video format, such as, AVI.
