The Mathematica 3.0 front end can export an animation to QuickTime format, but this is specific to the Macintosh platform. On other platforms, you can use kernel commands to export the graphics to GIF format. The command is Display[filename, graphic, "GIF"], where filename is the name of the .gif file that you want to store an individual image in, and graphic is a Mathematica graphics object. Once you have exported each graphic in the animation to separate files, you can use a third-party merging utility to string the GIFs together into an animated graphic. -- P.J.
