Question (CFD-Post ERROR) .cdat files with dynamic mesh events

elias.amancio is on a distinguished road

I had performed 1440 timesteps from a SI Engine simulation tutorial. During the timesteps, I saved the results using:

Calculation Activities -> Automatic Export -> Solution Data Export -> CDAT for CFD-Post.

I opened CFD-Post and loaded the results which were available at the clock icon (all 1440 .cdat files were available). However, while creating an animation, I got the following error "ERROR: Size of PackedCStringArray is zero."

I realized some timesteps are able to be ploted and some gave this error. Furthermore, I tried to open these problematic timesteps all alone at a different CFD-Post windows, and it was possible to plot them individually.

However, I realized these timesteps coincided with dynamic mesh events that excluded regions of the intake and exhaust valves.

Is it possible to plot them together using CFD-Post anyway?
