Animation of Fluent transient data
I need to create an animation out of a transient solution data from Fluent.

There are many transient files to be considered to produce the animation.

If I create a solution animation in the calculation activities I wonder if the simulation would take long as the animation commands need to be executed at many time steps as is the requirement in my case.

Isn't there a way to produce such animation after the simulation is finished.

Taking a snapshot of each transient file data is not possible as there are many.

I tried to use CFD Post but fluent transient data is not supported in it's time step selector.

Could some one please suggest a better way of doing this

Do use tecplot360 its very easy and possible what you thinking now.
let me know if you want help in this regard.
Try to load case and dat file from fluent data loader in tecplot and generate simulation simply.It is as simple as telling you.:)

Sure you can use CFD Post. You have to write backup-files every time step. When you load in the last backup-file of your simulation, you can use the transient solutions like you do with CFX. This works only with the transient solver.
