Creating an animation
Hello all!

I have just created a wind tunnel simulation in Star-CCM+ and would appreciate some help getting an animation. As far as I know, once I have set a scalar displayer and a path name, several images should be created to compile: to make a video. Does the simulation need to be run again?

Does anyone have any experience with this topic?

Many thanks, Jono

Is it a transient sim?

You will need to run the sim again then, in the scene(s) you want to export you can turn on export to file and change the update to what you want. I am afraid I can't quite remember which folder in the scene the output is but it isn't too hard to find...

Re: Creating an animation
you must write a .pstt file in order to make a simulation

Not in STAR-CCM+ you mustn't!
