Dan,

I assume this is with MAPDL. Why not just use Plot Controls > Animate ...

For nonlinear analyses I like to use "Over Results"

Once you create the animation you like then use:

Plot Controls > Animate > Save Animation

This should allow you to create an AVI file

I usually use a Gif converter (Microsoft Gif) to create a Gif file that then
one can import into PowerPoint.

Hi All,

I thought there was a menu pick for this.

This is what I've tried so far.

I can dump out a .amin file (whoppee!). Tried to load it into DISPLAY and
the Ansys Animate programs. Nothing shows up.

I went under utility menu>plot controls> device options and there was an
.avi box I picked there.

That seemed to work, but Ansys tends to crash.

I haven't tried it yet, but I here and older version of "animate.exe" might
be the way to go......

Nope didn't work. Myself and another guy tried the same thing. It will only save a .anim file. That's the way I recalled being able to do it. Something wrong with our installation?

Using Ansys classic 14.5

My buddy found that he had to go back to animate.exe from our Ansys 11 installation to convert from .anim to .avi

This is pretty pitiful. Do the Workstench pukes have to go through the same aggravation to get stinking .avi file?

Ansys crashed a bot during this process I get this error in the Cygwin window used to start the program

1 [main] bash 7876 dtable::stdio_init: couldn't make stderr distinct from stdout, Wi
n32 error 6


Saw this in the error file a few times


*** ERROR *** CP = 79.545 TIME= 10:31:40
An unexpected error ( SIG$SEGV ) has occurred... ANSYS internal data
has been corrupted. ANSYS is unable to recover and will terminate.
Previously saved files are unaffected. Please send the data leading
to this operation to your technical support provider, as this will
allow ANSYS, Inc to improve the program.

Dan,

Please check if you have the aero theme in Windows 7 enabled. That might
cause issues.

Dan,

I assume this is with MAPDL. Why not just use Plot Controls > Animate ...

For nonlinear analyses I like to use "Over Results"

Once you create the animation you like then use:

Plot Controls > Animate > Save Animation

This should allow you to create an AVI file

I usually use a Gif converter (Microsoft Gif) to create a Gif file that
then one can import into PowerPoint.

Hi All,

I thought there was a menu pick for this.

This is what I've tried so far.

I can dump out a .amin file (whoppee!). Tried to load it into DISPLAY
and the Ansys Animate programs. Nothing shows up.

I went under utility menu>plot controls> device options and there was an
.avi box I picked there.

That seemed to work, but Ansys tends to crash.

I haven't tried it yet, but I here and older version of "animate.exe"
might be the way to go......

Hi Dan,
I can't save an .avi file either, but can create one using the Tools - Run Animate Utility from the Menu bar of the Product Launcher (I never use this as I just launch from cygwin). Not convenient, but possible.

Using Ansys classic 14.5

My buddy found that he had to go back to animate.exe from our Ansys 11 installation to convert from .anim to .avi

This is pretty pitiful. Do the Workstench pukes have to go through the same aggravation to get stinking .avi file?

Nope didn't work. Myself and another guy tried the same thing. It

Something wrong with our installation?

Using Ansys classic 14.5

My buddy found that he had to go back to animate.exe from our Ansys 11
installation to convert from .anim to .avi

This is pretty pitiful. Do the Workstench pukes have to go through

Dan,

I assume this is with MAPDL. Why not just use Plot Controls > Animate ...

For nonlinear analyses I like to use "Over Results"

Once you create the animation you like then use:

Plot Controls > Animate > Save Animation

This should allow you to create an AVI file

I usually use a Gif converter (Microsoft Gif) to create a Gif file
that then one can import into PowerPoint.

Hi All,

I thought there was a menu pick for this.

This is what I've tried so far.

I can dump out a .amin file (whoppee!). Tried to load it into
DISPLAY and the Ansys Animate programs. Nothing shows up.

I went under utility menu>plot controls> device options and there was
an .avi box I picked there.

That seemed to work, but Ansys tends to crash.

I haven't tried it yet, but I here and older version of "animate.exe"
might be the way to go......

I think the suggestion is that you disable Aero:

Right click the Desktop
Click Personalize
Under 'Basic and High Contrast Themes, click 'Windows 7 Basic'

Dan,
When I create an animation (play it from the menu animate), it creates jobname.avi file automatically. You just need to copy that as it overwrites when you start an new animation.
I have done this both with 14.x and 15. We should have the same settings on windows. But I think I had disabled that aero theme some time ago, may that matters.

The idea is to disable aero. Use the classic theme. For some reason that's the only way animations show up.
