I want to know if there is a way to generate animations with cutting planes. I can get the individual folders for the timesteps but can't seem to generate an animation with it in paraview.

- For making videos in postprocessing phase, if you are not familiar with other more powerful Unix tools, you can try to use "foamCreateVideo" script of OpenFOAM. Please search for it.
- For making videos in runtime, you can use runTimePostprocessing function object (another link).
