Hi,

have you experienced this problem: when create a movie from solution data with many steps, PV launches some app "paraview-real". That app eats whole memory and swap and computer is hanged (busy)?
I had to restart it violently. I'm pretty sure, that simulation with 100x100 cells can't take so much mem if does properly!

Also, is there some way to make those avi-s like this: create view state in PV, save it; launch video making app (through ssh for example) and gives state file as argument. Also time interval could be set?

Regards,
Kārlis

I think there is a bug in that paraview version. Turn off the buttons that say "Cache mesh" in the Import Panel and "Cache Geometry" in the Animation panel. One of them should be labled "Turn on memory leak" (Am not sure which one)
