Hello,

I have a headless (no video card and no screen) Ubuntu server. I am using this machine to run my OpenFoam simulations. Now I am trying to write a python script, which generates a video of the simulation and saves it. I know how to create a video of the simulation with ParaView GUI (File>Save Animation) which uses onscreen rendering. Since the machine I have has no screen, I need to create the video with offscreen rendering.

I setup Mesa and ParaView in the server by following the instructions in the link below:

http://paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView/ParaView_And_Mesa_3D

Is there an example code or a documentation for creating a python script for generating OpenFoam simulation videos by using offscreen rendering with ParaView?

Thank you for the help in advance.
