Convert image to movie frame
Load an indexed image of a mandrill's face.
Display the image
X using its associated colormap,
map, which has 220 colors.

Make a movie that shows the effect of reducing the number of colors of the image. There will be eight movie frames in total. Preallocate an array of structures to store the movie frames.
F(8) = struct('cdata',,'colormap',);
In a loop, reduce the number of colors in the indexed image by using the
imapprox function. Use the
im2frame function to convert the images into frames of a movie. The first frame is the original image with all 220 colors. The second frame has 128 colors. Each successive frame has half the number of colors. The last frame has the minimum number of colors, 2.
for j = 1:8 q = 2^(9-j); [Y,newmap] = imapprox(X,map,q,'nodither'); F(j) = im2frame(Y,newmap); end
To play the movie twice with a frame rate of three frames per second, use
RGB— Truecolor image
Truecolor image, specified as an
m-by-n-by-3 numeric array. If you
specify an image of data type
double, then values must be
in the range [0, 1].
X— Indexed image
Indexed image, specified as an m-by-n matrix of integers.
Colormap associated with indexed image
as a c-by-3 numeric matrix with values in the range [0,
1]. Each row of
map is a three-element RGB triplet that
specifies the red, green, and blue components of a single color of the
F— Movie frame
Movie frame, returned as a structure with two fields:
cdata — The image data stored as an
colormap — The colormap. For
truecolor (RGB) images, this field is empty.
