I have been working on a simulation involving a rotating Frisbee in crosswind. Is there a way that I can create a little animation to show the Frisbee rotating and a few of the relative streamlines or velocity contours across its surface?

Hi
if you're working with sliding mesh you have to save at xxx time step the cas (for the grid) and dat (for results) files; then you can load the complete history in cfd-post or tecplot for example to display and save the animation.

I suppose im not using that. I am just setting the frisbee to a rotating wall inside the enclosure.

So if you have an unsteady solution save one cas file and all dat files and load all of them in cfd post or tecplot as I wrote.
