I'm confuse of where I can adjust the frames per second in motion study. Does the playback speed have to do anything with the FPS? Thank you.
The other location I mentioned is the motion properties. See images below for the icon to launch it and the fields for the different motion studies.
Yes. Check the reply by Ian here Re: Super Slow Motion
Further to Depaks reference to my other post,
There are a few locations where you specify frames per second. In the motion options you are telling it in essence how many result points per second you want saved from the motion (fps multiplied by simulation time gives you the number of results). It does not control the playback speed directly, but does influence the level of fidelity in the resulting animation. In the case of motion analysis, it will driven the data points you will see plotted on the graphs of engineering results (ie velocity, acceleration, force, displacement etc).
The playback speed will ajust the speed of frame playback (either show each frame longer to slow down or skip frames to speed up). This is directly influenced by model size and graphics card performance. Don't expect toget realtime playback in most situations.
The second location where you specify frame rate is when exporting movies to avi or image files. This drives the quality of the saved animation and hence the files size. Typically for realtime playback, around 15 frames per second is a good starting place. There are quite a few other posts on the forum regarding exported avi format and quality.
Hope this helps,
Thank you for your response. But I'm still confuse on where I input the numbers to set the frame rate. If I wanted to to set my frame rate per say at 500 FPS or 10,000 FPS where would I input this numbers. In the play back speed option I only see numbers with a suffix "x" (e.g. 1x) and option for time in seconds. Thank you.
You have to fill while you're saving the animation.
Thank you, but what about in the assembly mode setting up the motion analysis, can I change the FPS. For example I want to add a motor on a shaft to make it rotate, but because of the strobe effect it makes it appear as if it is rotating in the wrong direction. So I want to increase my frames per second in the assembly mode before saving it to an AVI format, thank you.
Got it, thank you, I understand it now, you guys have been a lot of help, thanks again.
