This is not CFD (or OpenFOAM) related. but, it will be highly appreciated if someone familar with paraview can help. I cannot post question on the paraview mailing list yet. So, I thought that I will try this forum first.

I did a simple particles under magnetic field calculation using perl as following:

initially, a couple of hundreds of particles are randomly distributed inside a domain (say, Xmin, Ymin, Xmax, Ymax) using a random generator. The size of the particles are also randomly generated.

The domain is then under magnetic field, this starts to track the particles toward the magnetic source.

I have aleady calculated the particle positions as a function of time. Now, I would like to plot the particles (including the size) as function of time, ie, animation.

What format should I use so that paraview can read the dataset in?
Any tutorial on paraview on something like this (how to do animation of particles in paraview)?

Hello! Sorry to bump this old thread, but have you found an answer to your problem?
Could you please provide a small example of a particle file?
