ParaFoam: Slice Animation
 
I've performed a simulation using simpleFoam and would now like to create an animation of the steady-state results by moving a slice through the geometry.

Is there a way to automate this? I know that I could save a screenshot and then move the slice coordinates but that is a bit tedious.

The result will be something like this:

Paraview allows you to "animate" filter properties (which is probably what you want): Have a look at this

Thanks, I believe that is what I was looking for.
