Hi Nasser,

a crude way to doit is to save the created graphics and finally store 

them e.g. in AVI format. However, mathematica is awfully fast and 

creates a lot of pictures. Therefore, it is best to put a Pause 

statement in to slow it down. Here is ane xample:

tmp={};

Manipulate[(AppendTo[tmp,t=Plot[Sin[x^a],{x,.1,1}]];Pause[0.1];t),{a,-1,1}]

Export["d:/tmp/t.avi",tmp]

hope this helps, Daniel
