Animation Error in Fluent
 
Hi Everyone,

I am simulating flow over a square cylinder in 3D and trying to create animations of the vortex field.

I am applying the animations through: Solve/Monitors/Animations.

However, when the simulation finishes and I try to playback the animation to write the mpeg, I get this error:

"mpeg_encode param1"

MPEG ENCODER STATS (1.5b)

If anyone can help with this error and why it occurs, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Andrew
