Export data from several .res files
Hello, friends,

Someone asked a question about making animation from several .res files. My question is how to export the data from several files. I mean how to export pressure and velocity, for example, on a line from several .res or .trn files. I tried using scripts but it did not export any data at all. I used Batch mode CFX-Post.

Anybody has experience on that, please give me some hints.

Re: Export data from several .res files
If you use Unix(linux,solaris,etc...) and you know a little of csh or sh scripting this can be done very easily. Then you'll combine an unix script with the batch file of post to get your files.

Re: Export data from several .res files

-Launch Post. -Create a new session file and begin recording. -Open one of your res files. -Create the line object to export data on. -Export the data you want on the line. -Stop recording the session file.

Now, open the session file in a text editor. All your actions and relevent objects will be in that session file. Put a Perl loop around the whole thing and you can load multiple files, writing a new export for each.
