Plotting output
I want to know to Whether the contour plots be can be saved only in bmp and jpeg(3D plots) format by taking snapshots or is there any other way since the resolution of these are not good when it is imported in Word or Latex.Can the results file be imported in any other softwares such as Tecplot etc....It would be possible to get better plots...

You can try reading the results file in Tecplot.

By the way, not sure what you meant the resolution is not good when the snapshots are imported in Word? You may crop out the unnecessary area before embedding them in Word or Latex, to if it helps or not.

would like to know what kind of file format need to export if would like to use Ensight for post-processing?

You can export the contours using the hardcopy window under the file menu.

For this; you should plot the contours and when that window is active you should go to hardcopy winidow. In that window; you can select from different formats and color, b&w and etc.
