Hi guys, I have been using OpenFOAM for a while with simulations run with a vessel producing a wake behind it. I will be presenting my simulations and need to record them onto a video file type but am unsure of how to. I have tried numerous times and I cant seem to be able to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

What have you tried and why didn't it work out?

The problem was getting a simulation to be saved as a video file in ParaView so it can be presented. Under the file tab there is a save animation button which can be selected. This runs through all the time steps and saves each time step as an individual screen shot. These images must then be stitched together using an external source to create the video required. I was having trouble with this but after some fiddling around it was achieved.

Greetings to all!

This has been asked before on another thread... start reading here: Paraview 3.12 - How to compile with ffmpeg for animation post #2
And it's not the only explanation there is... you can use Google to find more examples:
