Hi guys,
I am having some trouble in CFD-Post. I have a 3D model in Fluent already solved. I set data file to be automatically saved every 1000 timesteps. Now I have over 150 data files (Cases). When I go to the timestep selector I am able to choose just a few data files, but when I go to the animation window and try to play it as quick animation the program loads all the 150 timesteps taking too long and sometimes running out of ram memory. What I would like to do is to select 4 spaced timesteps (say #10, #50, #100 and #150).
Best regards,
