I'm making a video in MATLAB using "avifile" command like so: VelDist = avifile(['Results/VelDist','.avi'],'compression','None'); ... frame = getframe(gcf); VelDist = addframe(VelDist,frame); What happens is that on my XP machine, the windows taskbar somehow appears in the video, and I don't suppose that's normal? Any way to fix this? It doesn't happen on my Vista machine btw. Thanks in advance to whoever helps. =) Edit: The screenie below is the video viewed on my Vista machine on VLC, if anyone asks about the Vista-style window.
