First choose 'Time step' instead of 'Iteration' in the relevant panel. Second, fluent offers the ability to convert animations to MPEG format, check the manual.

I don't know how to display every single frame.But I do know how to convert them to a media. To do this,you must Inite first.Then choose Solve -> Animate -> Define,it's chooseable only when you have inite.Enter Animation sequence(eg.1),choose Define.Storage type:Metafile,enter Name(can use default),enter Storage directory(it will be set to the directory where you read the case if you do not enter),enter Window namber(eg.2),prese set,a window will be open.Choose Display type(eg.Vectors),press Display in the window which opened,the window opened for plot will display what you want.Close -> OK ->OK. Then Iterate.When it's done select Solve ->Animate ->playback.You can adjust the replay speed.Then choose MPEG in Write/record format.Press Write.A mpeg file will be creat in the directory you choose. I'will continue to find the way display every single frame.

To display every single frame: Solve>animate>playback. You can both display the whole animation or the single frame. Obviously the frames have to be stored as metafiles every (or every 2, 3, 4, ...) time step. Then you can save it as a media file (but ONLY MPEG is supported, and the quality is...) or as an .anm file or you can write every single frame as an hardcopy and use an external application to build up your own .avi or .gif animation. Good luck! (we need it...)
