Greetings Frankie,

When in doubt, RTFM? ;)

Anyway, the ParaView User Guide explains the basics about animation:

At the Tutorials page - - you'll find a big document (more than 30MB) named The ParaView Tutorial (for version 3.12) and in there you'll find the section "Exercise 2.30: Animating Properties". Start reading there and you better learn how to do animations on your own with those tutorials ;)

Have fun!

thank you for your reply full of links. but i dont have time to read 200pages of a software's tutorial & be an expert to make a successful animation and explain everything and email it to my teacher by sunday afternoon.

It's about 5 pages if you start reading from the section "Exercise 2.30: Animating Properties" of the ParaView Tutorial guide!!

Actually, you can start from the section "2.14 Animations" that has one paragraph, then read and follow the 4 examples it has! It's that simple! It's 5 pages!!! :rolleyes:

Short answer: No. :p

Long answer: Why? The world is so big, there are so many forums, so many possibilities to learn and ask... why would you need to keep asking the same person? ;)
