paraFoam / paraview crashes when exporting images/animation
As mentioned in the subject. I'm trying to save an animation but paraview (being run as paraFoam 3.6.1) keeps crashing. I've attached the error output to the attached file. It also crashes when I try and save a screen shot. Any ideas?
Here's the text of the first few lines:
It doesn't fix your problem but you can always download the paraview binary from paraview.org and then use 'foamToVTK' and open the VTK file. The binary paraview should work fine for saving snapshots.
I've got the same problem. I wish there was any solution.
I use the paraview binary that can be downloaded here:
I have used Linux, Mac and Windows and they are all fine.
The way I create a animation from paraview is:
File -> save animation.
Then save your animation as jpeg images (instead of an avi).
This will create multiple jpeg images which can be sewn together to make an animation.
To join the jpegs together to create an mpeg (for Linux or Mac):
While in the directory with the jpegs, use the following command:
There are probably other ways to join multiple jpegs into an mpeg, but this works well for me.
If you just want a snap-shot of paraview then just use your operating system's built-in screenshot function (there's a printscreen button on Window's keyboards, in Mac it is cmd-shift-4, something similar in Linux).
Hope it helps,
I have similar problem on my Dell Latitude laptop with Ubuntu 11.10.
I am using paraFoam (paraview 3.12 64-bit).
It crashes/freezes after "save screenshot" command ...
(Although it works for animation)
Message from terminal :
X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
Extension: 155 (Uknown extension)
Minor opcode: 11 (Unknown request)
Resource id: 0x4400273
It works fine on my second computer...
Did anyone of you solved this problem ?
I found solution for this problem on:
Also try disbaling "Use Offscreen Rendering for screenshots" from Edit |Settings dialog (Render View page).
But still it seems strange because I have, the same system ubuntu11.10 and same paraview, on my other computer and it works fine without doing this ...
