Personal Profile:

I'm a controls student at University of Dayton pursuing a PhD by applying developmental learning so robots can incrementally learn high dimension tasks. I was a DAGSI fellow, but am currently an Ohio Space Grant Consortium fellow. I also work at the Air Force Institute of Technology using real-time pan-tilt-zoom cameras to find wing shapes in flight or space boom deployment characteristics.

Glad it helped Lazaros!
To make it bigger, just make the figure window bigger.
If you’re having issues with the compressions with the ‘MPEG’ format, you can add a quality factor, but the default of 75 (of 100) normally works good for me.
Add the following lines to the function, CaptureFigVid.m
Line 72:
if isfield(OptionZ,'Quality')
daObj.Quality=OptionZ.Quality;
end
And then from where you call it, add
OptionZ.Quality=100;

25 Sep 2012 Intersection point of lines in 3D space Finding intersection point of lines in 3D space (two or more lines). Author: Anders Eikenes

Works great. Thanks for adding it up.

23 Jul 2012 3D Rotation about Shifted Axis Computes/applies rotation about arbitrary 3D line. Author: Matt J

Good work. I'd recomend adding the copyright restrictions to the source code to keep them together.

15 Feb 2012 Pareto Set find the pareto set from n points with k objectives Author: Yi Cao

Tried on 2011a 64bit and didn't get corret results (only two points). Seems that default dimensions changed the fix is adding the ',2' for the max direction.
Corrected: line 23 of pretoset.m
[x,checklist]=sort(max(X1./(Xmean(ones(m,1),:)+1),2));

19 Dec 2011 Recursive directory listing - Enhanced RDIR Files and directories listing, including recursive and other special features Author: Thomas Vanaret

Works great and saved me a lot of time.
A suggested improvement, instead of looking at the file size to identify directories, use the isdir flag.
Line 286: if D(ii).isdir %sz<0,
Change display to allow for 0b files
Line 291-293:
ss = max(0,min(4,floor(log2(sz)/10)));
disp(sprintf('%4.0f %1sb %20s %-64s ',...
sz/1024^(ss+eps),pp{ss+1}, datestr(D(ii).datenum, 0), D(ii).name));
