I have a problem which I couldnt find an answer searching in internet.
I have a simulation done in openfoam and open the data in Paraview (not paraFoam) and I want to save the animation but not from the beginning! I want to start saving the animation after certain time. I know I can save the png-files from the beginning and then thraw away those files I do not want but I am wondering if there instead a way to start saving from the time I want!?

thanks in advance.

That can be done when you save your animation. When you've chosen your output-format, click on the "Advanced properties" (gear-icon in the top right corner). Go to "Animation Options" and enter from frame n to m in the "Frame Windows" boxes.

Also, check attachment.

Best regards
