Record and Play Animations

Record virtual reality world animation in VRML or AVI format

You can record animations of Simulink® 3D Animation™ virtual worlds that Simulink or MATLAB® control. Record simulations using either the Simulink 3D Animation Viewer or the MATLAB interface. You can then play back the animations offline. For a summary of animation recording options, see Animation Recording.

Functions

vrplay Play VRML animation file
vrview View virtual world using Simulink 3D Animation viewer or Web browser

Apps

Simulink 3D Animation Player Play recorded 3D animation files

Topics

Animation Recording

Record animations of virtual scenes that the Simulink or MATLAB product controls.

Define File Name Tokens

Use file name tokens to create varying file names for frame capture or animation files.

File Name Tokens

Explore the file name tokens that you can use to create varying file names for frame capture or animation files.

Record Offline Animations

Record animations of virtual scenes that the Simulink and MATLAB products control.

Manual 3-D Recording with MATLAB

Record a 3-D animation manually using the MATLAB interface for a virtual world that is associated with a Simulink model.

Manual 2-D AVI Recording with MATLAB

Record a 2-D animation manually using the MATLAB interface for a virtual world that is associated with a Simulink model.

Scheduled 3-D Recording with MATLAB

Schedule the recording of a 3-D animation using the MATLAB interface for a virtual world that is associated with a Simulink model.

Scheduled 2-D AVI Recording with MATLAB

Schedule the recording of a 2-D animation using the MATLAB interface for a virtual world that is associated with a Simulink model.

Record Animations for Unconnected Virtual Worlds

Record animation files programmatically for virtual worlds that are not associated with Simulink models (in other words, from the MATLAB interface).

Play Animation Files

View virtual world animation files.

Play Animations with Simulink 3D Animation Viewer

Play virtual world animation files with the Simulink 3D Animation Viewer.

View a Virtual World in Stereoscopic Vision

View a virtual world using 3D effects, so that elements in the virtual world appear to come forward or back from the plane of the monitor.

Listen to Sound in a Virtual World

If a virtual world contains a Sound node and your computer supports sound, then you can listen to the sound using Simulink 3D Animation components.
