I have a set of .dat files corresponding to results after each time step of a transient problem. How can I animate the results in Fluent without any other software.

P.S. : I had trouble in animating the results in CFD-POST, as I wasn't able to select the desired location ini Contour plot.

Hi Akash,

Just suggestion
