Default Fluent animation commands

Hi I'm a 3rd year Aerospace student at the University of Manchester and looking at vortex shedding from a cylinder in fluent 5.5. I'm having problems generating the tiff files in order to animate the flow. Does anyone know the commands ( solve - monitors - command) to automaticaly create a tiff file and then save the picture? any help would be much appreciated.

many thanks

This belongs on the Fluent Forum.

I think that you can find the answer in the archives - use the site-wise search engine and search for "quality fluent movies".
