I have a rotor blade that was set up using the rotor wizard and rotates at 17000RPM. Is it possible to show a (slowed-down) animation of the blade rotating, with nothing else shown, just as geometry? I have displayed the blades using a periodic transform so all blades are showing, I just would like to show that they are moving via an animation

You can save each time-step as a .png file and from there you can make yourself an animation.

To take a snapshot at each time step go to your scene---> attributes-----> update

Go to the update properties and set it to "save to file".
