Making avi-file in ParaView
Hello, colleagues!
Please, help me. How to make avi-file in ParaView? I've made an animation, I can save it in jpeg, png, etc. BUT NOT IN AVI! There isn't such menu choice. But accoridong to ParaView manual there should be.
Best regards, Aleksey.

Hello Aleksey :

I think the output of paraview is only photos not avi
you can change the photos to animations very easy using any software you like ,, you may use that one

Hello Aleksey,

the mplayer with mpeg4 codec works fine for me and is easy to handle over command line.
