The plots differ in color based on the Z value.

Have you tried the FAQ: http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#How_can_I_create_a_movie_from_my_MATLAB_figures.3F

hi,

If you mean you have a plot from 2 vectors x and y, then you can use the function pause to drawn each point :

for n=1:length(x)

plot(x(n),y(n)) pause(N), % where N is numbers of seconds hold on, end

Here is an example from my File Exchange : http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/41579-projectile-motion-in-weak-gravitational-fieldg=3-71-ms%C2%B2

The comet function is also quite nice.

X = sin(0:.01:2*pi); comet(X)

%or X = sin(0:.01:2*pi); Y = 0:.01:2*pi; comet(X,Y)

Yes, though it could be even better if there were some way to control the speed of the comet and length of the tail.
