File Information

The 3D animation is created using the surf and drawnow commands. An example animation file is provided. The rotation is based on Euler/Cardan angles and performed with individually computed rotation matrices (rather than using Matlab's own rotate algorithm).

In a future version, there will be more documentation on the animation data and scripts for creating animation files (both in Mathematica and Matlab) will be provided. Also, avi export will be available in the next version.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.4 (R2007a)
