How to Animate Plots in MATLAB: getframe() and movie() Explained

 Looking for a way to elevate your plot presentation? Learn how to record and animate plots in MATLAB® with this quick tutorial on the functions getframe() and movie. The function getframe() allows you to capture the axes or figures as a movie frame. The recorded movie frames can then be displayed using the movie() function. The recorded frames can be played any number of times at a user-defined fps. Try it yourself!
