In this section we will cover how to create QuickTime movies, animated gifs and Goole Earth files within the IDV.
  1. First, load in some data with multiple time steps and create a display.
  2. Save this state off as the "movie" bundle.
  3. Open the Movie Capture window by selecting the View->Capture->Movie menu item from the map view's menu bar.

  5. A movie is simply a sequence of frames. There are three ways to capture this sequence.
  6. You can capture one frame with the Capture one image button.
  7. Start fresh by clicking the Delete all button in the main Movie Capture window.
  8. Now, let's capture an entire animation by clicking the Capture animation button.
  9. When the animation is complete the File Dialog will automatically be shown. Make sure you are in the directory /home/idv. Enter the name workshop.mov. Click Save.
