Hi everybody,

I'm developing my own codes and I have a little problem regarding animations. When I work with 2D problems, I was writing the result matrix from my C code to a file and then using MATLAB, I was making a contour plot of my data.

But now, I'm working on a project that I need to visualize my results in 3D instantly. I want to watch the animation as the problem is being solved. I'm considering recording results in each time step and again using MATLAB making some animations if possible. But do you know a better way for animations? I want to prepare a user interface using C++ (I'm also not so familiar with this language) and I want to use an animation tool, maybe a library with C++. I will solve a transient problem and want to watch my 3D domain at every time step.

Thank you for any help.

Best Regards,
Emre.

You can create pbrt file to render animation. I'm working on it too

thank you, it looks really good. Have you managed to perform any animations with that tool?

Check out Mayavi, This is software for 3D scientific data vizualization, you can also make some animations with this and is an opensource
