Play Animation Files
Play Virtual World Animation Files
You can view virtual world animation files using one of these approaches:
Open the 3D Animation Player from the MATLAB® Toolstrip.
To open the 3D Animation Player from the MATLAB Toolstrip, in the Apps tab, in the Simulation Graphics and Reporting section, click 3D Animation Player. Select or specify a virtual world 3D animation file.
From the operating system, locate and double-click the VRML animation file
Double-click the virtual world 3D file. An HTML5-enabled web browser opens with the animation running. To view the resulting animation file, you must have an HTML5-enabled web browser installed on your system.
filenameis the name of your virtual world 3D file. This command opens the 3D Animation Player and your file. Using the player, you can control the playback of your file.
For example, play the animation file based on the
vr_octaviaexample by running
vrplayworks only with VRML animation files created using the Simulink® 3D Animation™ recording functionality.
In the Current Folder pane of MATLAB, double-click the animation file and from the context menu, select Run.
At the MATLAB command line, use
A fourth option is to use the MATLAB command
vrview. For example, enter:
vrviewcommand displays the default Simulink 3D Animation Viewer for the animation file. Setting the
TimeSourceproperty of the
'freerun'directs the viewer to advance its time independent of the MATLAB software.
To stop the animation, type:
To close the viewer and delete the world, get the handle of
vrfigure object and close it, as follows:
f=get(w,'Figures') close(f); delete(w);
Or, to close all
vrfigure objects and delete
the world, type
Play AVI Animation Files
To view an AVI animation file, use one of these approaches:
Double-click the AVI animation file. The program associated with
.avifiles in your system (for example, Windows Media® Player Media Player) opens for the
.avifile. If your
.avifile is not yet running, start it now from the application. The animation file runs.
Use the MATLAB
