I have 3D matrix with dimension of 600x600x28 which the last index is number of frames and want to convert it to video file. I tried as a below but raised with error:
Unrecognized function or variable 'cmap'.
My code:
Orig = rand(600,600,28);
X = permute(Orig,[1 2 4 3]); % 4D matrix
movie = immovie(X,cmap);
implay(movie);

You never defined the variable cmap which is supposed to be a color map.
Try This:
Orig = rand(600,600,28);
camp=parula;
X = permute(Orig,[1 2 4 3]); % 4D matrix
movie = immovie(X,cmap);
implay(movie);

The reason I was getting this error is because the function call immovie(X,map) requires X to be an indexed image. It means that the values of X must greater than 1. Therefore, changing the code like below solved the issue:
Orig = randi([1 255],600,600,1,28);
cmap=parula;
movie = immovie(Orig,cmap);
implay(movie);
