Animation scenario not working

Sorry, this may be a basic question, but I am relatively new to Floworks.

I have simulated a 4cyl intake using a Time function table for each cylinder with 100x 1ms steps and the resultant flow (basically showing 5 complete engine intake cycles). The calculation has gone through with no errors and I can pull up any of the 10,000 iterations and show the static surface pressures, velocity etc.

When I do a time based scenario animation though, I specify a 100sec time, 100 frames/sec and everything seems to work fine, but my main image on the screen just shows the transparent outline of my part (no pretty colours).

How do I link the scenario animation to the surface pressure plot so I can visualise the changes in surface pressure?

Thanks, Jim
