Hi Everybody,

I install the latest version of paraview 3.12.0 but one problem arise from it:-
when I want to save an animation, I don't have the possibiliy to save an animation in avi format (only jpg, tiff or png format). Can someone tell me how can i save the animation in .avi format?

One way is to compile your paraview with the python option and then there is a possibility to save the animation (I have not tried it by myself yet). There is an other way that I used to do is to convert your jpeg's into a movie by the "convert" command available in Linux.
