Good morning guys,

I've been using paraview 3 and paraview 2-6 for the last two weeks to check my OpenFOAM results. In order to visualize my results with Paraview 3 (paraFoam will not work), I used the foamToVTK converter (which works very well) and opened the VTK files with Paraview 3. The only thing is that I'm not able to get an animation in Paraview 3 with all my time steps. Any idea on how to do it ? All time steps where converted with foamToVTK.

Best regards,

PODallaire

Animations didn't work with 3.0 AFAIK. I don't know if 3.1 or 3.2 is the first version to support that

Hi Pierre-Olivier,
There's an entry on ParaView Wiki.
http://paraview.org/Wiki/Animating_l...TK_file_series
Looking around the source tree it seems the latest CVS seems to have this feature built-in (I haven't tested it myself though)

Bernhard and Takuya,

thanks for messages. I'll take a look on the paraview wiki
as suggested by Takua.

Hi,

as mentionned on the wiki, Paraview as a "multi-file" reader
for VTK legacy files. I tried it but even if it looks that it is opening
a group of files, it seems that only one random file will open.
Did you try it Takuya ?

Thanks

Hi,
Yes it worked with today's CVS version. Note that you need to select group name on the right of disclosure mark (the blue highlighted "blow..vtk" in the Wiki case), not individual timestep files.
