Animation of Fluent transient data
I need to create an animation out of a transient solution data from Fluent.

There are many transient files to be considered to produce the animation.

If I create a solution animation in the calculation activities I wonder if the simulation would take long as the animation commands need to be executed at many time steps when the simulation is proceeding. ( I'm much used to CFX but just started up now with Fluent so this is how I know to do it)

Isn't there a way to produce such animation after the simulation is finished .

Taking a snapshot of each transient file data is not possible as there are many.

I tried to use CFD Post but fluent transient data is not supported in it's time step selector.

Could some one please suggest a better way of doing this with Tecplot
