Hi guys!
I ran a unsteady calculation and I setup capturing solution animation before I started it, then I got 100GB's of .hfm files.
When I tried to playback right after the calculation was over, somehow fluent crashed before I can export the case and data.
So now I have these many .hfm files, and what do I have to do to make an animation out of them?
Thanks!

I tried to read another case and data just to get in fluent, then I tried to get the solution animation playback by choosing the animation sequences(.cxa files) and tried to make a mpeg out of it, it kept telling me could not find .ppm files, so I tried to convert the hfm file to write them as ppm pictures, still nothing happened, so what can I do right now?

thanks!
