I only cannot use the functions or nr.image() because I'm plotting data points (scatterplots) through time and do not use expressions which are needed for these functions.

I will probably use the dos program BMP2avi available at: and try to run it via DOS code in R ...if that works.

(I'm working on a winXP workstation)
