Hello,

To animate the pressure variation in a duct, I have a question, how can I fix the color scale? I want to set, fix the values for pressure on the scale color (from 0 to -3000 Pa Pa) and during the animation, the color of pressure in the duct moves to visualize very well the variation. Is this possible?
Sorry for my English.
Thank you very much.

Hi, you can save after n time steps (1 or how many you want) the image of contour of pressure and then make the animation from these images using third party software (you can make a video or an animated gif).
All you have to do is write the command in execute command window to save the image contour of pressure, but before starting the simulation, plot the contour disabling the autorange setting and setting your scale.
So everytime the command is executed it will plot the contour with your scale and then save the image.
