@Rik: I attached a patch in which I fixed the problem of creating a new image for each movie. It also improves input checking and FPS accuracy.

Sorry, I had started rebasing but forgot to post here. I'll push a cset soon in order to fix some input validation issues (including the one that makes images accumulate) and timing inaccuracies.

@Pantxo: I refreshed your patch to apply to the dev branch and pushed it here (

I don't know what the expected behavior is, but when I call movie() multiple times it leaves multiple images in the figure object.  Perhaps movie.m should attempt to re-use an existing image, or maybe clear the axes before plotting in to it.  You might see how Matlab behavies on this point.

@Pantxo: This patch is old, but do you want to refresh it and check it in before the 5.0 release?

I attached an implementation of Matlab's "movie" function.
It currently misses the call form with a "loc" argument.
