Default Creating an animation
Posts: n/a
I have a surface sweep and I want to save this as an animation so I can send it to someone, but I can't figure out how to do this. Is it even possible to save an animation for a surface sweep? If not, does anyone have any tips or tricks on how I might be able to create an animation like this and save it to an mpeg (or avi, or whatever...)

Thanks in advance, Jason

Yes, You can make animation interms of movie. In fluent animation option is there (Display/Animation). But it will not give smooth movement of the animation. Another shortcut method is writing commands in Solve/execute commands.. In that one you can write commands so that you can save a jpg file for each iteration/timestep of your required contour and finally you can attach all the files. By using this method you can make movie of any controur or any vectors without applying much efforts. See this below link for further idea.

The best option to create avis for me is to use the animate panel to create a series of pictures (hardcopies) and merge them with makeAVI (freeware, see This way you can specify a framerate and avi-codec for your video.

good luck rom
