Hi Christoph,

Unfortunately there's no in built movie making facility in 
neuroConstruct, and none is planned. The easiest thing is to take a 
screen capture of the GUI as you're replaying the simulation. If you use 
Windows try http://camstudio.org/. Otherwise if you're on Linux, I've 
not used one recently, but try googling it and you should get a few 
suggestions: e.g. http://linuxappfinder.com/graphics/screencapture or 
http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1229. Istanbul looks like a 
good one. not sure if these will work on mac; there may be a native 
application to let you screen capture...

If you're feeling adventurous, and want some high resolution 
images/movies, try playing with the code here: 
http://sourceforge.net/p/neuroml/code/HEAD/tree/NeuroML2POVRay. This can 
be used to generate high res images from NeuroML network descriptions, 
by converting to POVRay. There is also a script, 
which allows a neuroConstruct simulation to be loaded & images generated 
for every time step, which can be made into a movie of the simulation 
(e.g. using avidemux on Linux). Not looked at this code in a while though...

Hope this helps,
