about an animation...
I try to make an animation with transient results.

I can't find animation commands at user guide book

if you know animation commands and formats,

please tell me them.

( not animation module but using panels )

Re: about an animation...
Page 9-46 of the User Manual has some information (albeit, not very helpful). Here is some sample code you can assign to a button in a panel to be used in pro-STAR (you can use the pro-STAR Help for more details on each command). Hope it helps!


!This line loads the transient results


!Sets the Plot Option (In this case both contour and vector) and Plot Type (in this case a section plot)


!Defines a new cell set of the fluid cells


!Begins the loop


!Stores the next time step in the transient data


!Gets the specific data to be plotted (for this case, all of the velocity vectors and the concentration of scalar 9)


!These are two ways to set the color scale. I find it useful for my work to use a user scale that doesn't change with time like the auto scale


!Plots to the screen

*END *LOOP,1.0,100,1.0

!Ends the loop and sets the start, end, and increment values for the loop
