How to create an animation in post processing
Simulation Runs as a video file?

Hi @sgowda,

you could use ParaView or an OpenSource application called Salome:

In Paraview you simply load the .vkt file \rightarrow Tools \rightarrow Python shell \rightarrow Click Run Script and chose the Python File.

For more details concerning the Salome-Meca usage also see:




Hey @sgowda!

For CFD, please follow offline post processing video here: Post-Processing Webinar Recordings (The animation in the video can only be made like this since the analysis was steady state)

For FEA, please follow this forum post: Beckham’s rocket kick clocked at 97.9 mph - crossbar impact Part 2: Post-Processing ⚽

Hope this helps. If you have any question/s, feel free to ask.



@afischer posted an animation a while ago in a workshop thread. Hope that helps a bit.
