What platform are you working on? On windows you can also create an animated gif file using ImageMagik (http://www.imagemagick.org/) from the cmd or you can use the more user friendly UnFREEz downloadable at http://www.whitsoftdev.com/unfreez/ ot Microsoft GIF animator(search for it on google). All the software mentioned are free and I have used them in the past to animate R output. Take a look at RSiteSearch("movie") for other interesting threads.

Cheers

Francisco
