Paraview 3.98 - errors when saving geometry file
 
When I try to save a geometry for an OpenFOAM case that includes a couple of slice filters and an STL terrain file, I get this error:

Code:

Any ideas? It could be harmless, the geometry files do get generated...

Greetings Stephen,

Sorry for the late reply, but the information you've provided isn't enough either :(
Therefore, a few questions:
  1. What file format are you trying to save the data/geometry to?
  2. The error message mentions animation... how exactly are you trying to save the data/geometry? Because it seems like you're trying to save all time snapshots.
  3. Are you able to reproduce this error with one of OpenFOAM's tutorials? Such as "incompressible/simpleFoam/motorBike"?
    You'll have to uncompress the file "constant/triSurface/motorBike.obj.gz" before opening it on ParaView.
Best regards,
Bruno
