Hi,

I have been given a bunch of tecplot (.plt) files to analyze. Is it possible to open them in paraview? I would rather use paraview because I like it better than tecplot. If this is not possible, can I open these files in tecplot and export them to a format that paraview will be able to handle?

Thanks in advance.

So, I loaded the files into tecplot and exported them to .dat format. Then I loaded the files into Paraview. However, for some reason only the last timestep loaded. Why is this happenening? Do I need to make tecplot export a new datafile for each timestep and then load all of them into paraview?
