    Posted by JMB at August 31. 2006

    I am trying to animate the deformed shape of a static analysis to visualize the distortion.  The user manual says:

    To generate an animation:
    1.  Right-click on the field in the Object Browser.
    2.  From the pop-up menu select Animation.

    However, I do NOT see any option called "Animation" when I right click anywhere!  What am I doing wrong?  Could somebody guide me please?

    Thanks

      Hi,
      So far as we understood from your post you create deformed shape presentation and try to animate it.
      The sequence of operation must be following:
      1.  Right-click on the field in the Object Browser.
      2.  From the pop-up menu select Sweep instead of Animation.

      Sweep allows to display pseudo-animation of a field presentation. For creation of this pseudo-animation you should take one field presentation generated on the base of ONE Time Step.
      In comparison with sweeping, animations are created on the base of frames, displaying field presentations generated on EVERY Time Stamp of your field.

        Igor,

        Thank you for your QUICk reply!  From what you write, I understand that I can "Animate" only if my analysis is a time stepped one.  For a simple linear static analysis only "Sweep" is available NOT "Animate".  Am I correct?

            BTW, (maybe you know) - in SALOME 3.2 you can write your animation into AVI file . It's necessary to have mjpegtools installed in your Linux  and point PATH on it. Then make your animation in Points viewer (turn on "Start recoridng" in the viewer toolbar before, if you have mpeg tools this functionaltiy becomes available).

              Sergey,

              Thanks for the information, but I did NOT know I could write animation into AVI files.  I have installed mjpegtools using "apt-get install mjpegtools", but I do not understand the rest of your instructions.  I tried to "locate mjpegtools" so I can point to it using the PATH variable, but I am lost.

              Also, I do not understand what you mean by "make your animation in the Points viewer (turn on start recording ...) etc. etc.  What do you mean by Points viewer?  Where do I turn on "start recording" in Salome?  Could you please give some detailed instructions to a novice?

              Thanks

                Hello All,

                I am now using Salome 3.2.6 and 3.2.9.  Is it possible to create AVI animation files (or MPEG, or other) using mpegtools or the like?  Thank you.

                Regards

                  Tested with 3.2.6 ...

                  In the directory where you have installed salome should be present
                  the file SAMPLES_SRC_3.2.6/MedFiles/TimeStamps.med

                  runSalome --> load visu --> import TimeStamps.med

                  in item TimeStamps.med in the study, there is dom,
                  then Fields, then temperature, K then more than one
                  time steps.

                  In that case, you can run an animation right clicking
                  directly "temperature, K" item

                  To save an avi, the mpegtool package must be installed.

                  For more informations, read the item

                  Post-pro -> 3D presentations -> Field presentations
                  -> animating presentations

                  in post-pro documentation.

                  E.A.
