I have a Mathematica program which produces a 3-D surface as its output,
which varies with time. I have a loop which produces one rendering of
the surface for each time interval.
I am currently making the output into a QuickTime movie by selecting the
rendered output cells at the end of fhe computation, and converting to
QuickTime. However, I cannot run the program for as long as I would
like due to running out of memory after a large number of time
So, my question is:
Can I somehow direct the rendered output frames DIRECTLY to a QuickTime
file (even if the file is not optimally compressed)? Or, if that is not
possible, can I direct the output to another type of file format which
some QuickTime editor can then process without too much pain?
At the moment I have to produce a short QuickTIme movie, then restart
Mathematica to regain my memory, then produce another short movie, then
stitch them together, etc. There has to be a better way!
No doubt one of you has solved this problem already. I would appreciate
By the way, I am running Mathematica 2.2 on an iMac under the Classic
emulator of OSX.
Thanks in advance,
