Double buffered graphics?

Is there any way to get Matlab to do double-buffered graphics (draw
into a back buffer, then swap buffers when the picture is complete)?

I am running on an SGI which has the hardware capability to do this,
and I would like to use Matlab instead of writing my own graphics
programs. But double buffering is essential to get smooth animations,
and there doesn't seem to be any way to do it.

I know that I can construct a movie file and then play it back. But
I am looking for a solution which happens more in "real-time", and
which doesn't demand so much memory.

E-mail would be preferred for any responses. Thanks in advance.
