Description: Script to create and play movies. This script uses dialogs to present a user friendly movie playing control panel. To create a movie open the sequence of images you want to turn into a movie. The images must be displayed in the sequence you want them to appear in the movie. If an ROI is present on the foremost image when the movie is made, then the ROI will define the area of the movie. Press the 'Create Movie' button, and a 3D movie stack will be created, and the original images are hidden. This movie stack, or any other 3D image stack, can then be played. The control palette only works when the movie is not playing - set up the zoom and any delay between frames, then play - either forwards or backwards. To change anything, stop the movie by holding down the SPACE BAR. The play conditions can then be changed or the play direction changed. ALT + 'Forwards' or 'Backwards' moves one frame at a time. Restore will return the movie back to its original condition - ie with the name- Movie and with frame 1 displayed. => Updated version positions dialog in the top right corner of the application window.
