Need an AVI file with moving object on a background


For a neuro-science-computation project I need an AVI file with a moving object
on some background (not just solid background, but may be a pattern or whatever...)

any specific dimensions for the avi? codec? length? type of movement? colors?

Not too big.
With regards to codec, I'm not sure. Anything standard will do (I will use MATLAB's aviread and frame2im).
I created a simple avi, 30 sec  320x240 with a red square moving across a star field.

check if it's what you want... or I can change it to whatever you want.

Thanks CarlosMMartins :-)
glad it served your purpose. :)
slaviknAuthor Commented:
Could you please make this AVI grayscale? (there moving square should still remain seen :)
I'm finishing uploading it to:
It should be there by the time you read this.
slaviknAuthor Commented:
I'm afraid the new AVI is corrupted (both winamp and matlab can't open it, whereas they both could open the first one). :-(
That's weird... can you at least play it in Windows Media Player?

I just ran a "grayscale" filter on virtualdub on the "color" avi. I'll check it's using the same codec.
slaviknAuthor Commented:
No... mediaplayer doesn't play it either.
Never mind... I found a way to do it in Matlab.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!! You've been very helpful!!
well, glad you sorted it out... It probably was using a codec you didn't have (xvid maybe).
