[R] HOW to Create Movies with R with repeated plot()?

I only cannot use the functions nr.movie() 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:
http://www.bialith.com/TPDownloads/BATPDownloads.htm and try to run it
via DOS code in R ...if that works.

(I'm working on a winXP workstation)
