I have a question about the Quick Animation in CFD Post.
If the simulation is steady and if we make a contour plot for a parameter on a plane, we can make a Quick Animation for that contour plot and the distribution of the parameter will be changing during the running of the animation, but how could this happen if the simulation is steady and there are no different time steps to change the frame at each?

Did you use the Sweep Animation Method ? If so, in the CFX Post manual this is written:

"The Sweep Animation option provides a means to automatically sweep objects across their defined range to visualize the data throughout the domain. Planes, isosurfaces, turbo surfaces, streamlines, and particle tracks can all be animated with the Quick Animator."

So it just sweeps through your domain.
