Tech Tip – Transient Animation Improvements in CFD-Post

ANSYS CFD-Post is a state-of-the-art postprocessing tool used to visualize and quantify results from CFD simulations. At R17, transient flow variations are easier to animate using the new “Timestep Animation” option. This new capability uses ‘music-player’ style controls to play back transient results.

Some new user-interface options for Timestep Animation:

  • ‘Specify Range For Animation’ allows to trim the start/stop at specific timesteps instead of playing the entire animation.
  • ‘Advanced Frame Selection Controls’ allows to skip timesteps during the animation. This option is useful for speeding-up creation of animations from large results files.
