I don't know if this a little extreme but I need to plot 480 plots. I'm combining them in an animated plot so I can see how the plot fluctuates over time. However, it's taking an unbelievably long time (timed it and it took almost 37 minutes) to get through all 480 plots. The transitions aren't smooth and are very laggy. It also makes my computer lag. This is the code I have. Can't seem to figure out the problem. Should I make changes to it or turn this animated plot into a movie instead? If yes, how do I do so? Thanks in advance!

` figure hold on; for k = 1:(length(h)*added_points) for i = 1:30 for j = 1:30 vqVal = zeros(1,1); if ~isempty(cellArray{i,j}) % new cell array`

vqVal = cellArray{i,j}(k); end vqHrPax{i,j} = vqVal; end end h = linspace(103.6,104,30); y = linspace(1.5,1.25,30); [X,Y] = meshgrid(h,y); V = cell2mat(vqHrPax); view(3); %surf(X,Y,V);

n = 300; xq = linspace(103.6,104,n); xy = linspace(1.5,1.25,n); [Xq,Yq] = meshgrid(xq,xy); Vq = interp2(X,Y,V,Xq,Yq,'cubic'); surf(Xq,Yq,Vq); % plots interpolated data

% for loop to change title of each plot

xlabel('Longitude'); ylabel('Latitude'); % str = sprintf('Pax at Hour %d', k);

% title(str)

s = 0; for l = s:(s+20) if k > s && k <=(s+20) str = sprintf('Hour %d', ((s/20)+1)); title(str); end s = s + 20; end axis tight colormap default drawnow % pause(0.001)

end
