    save animation in model colours

    Daniel Woodside

      Hi, I am working on a project where I am supposed to run simulations of a model and save the animations as avi files. The problem I'm running into is that when I make the avi file, the model is displayed in the gradient colors and I need it to show the model colour. I've looked through the settings but I can't find any way to change this so I was wondering if someone here could tell what I need to do.

      Thanks

          Not sure of a way to do model colours, but you can bodge it so you get everything as one colour (a nice metallic grey or something).  If you go in to Chart Options > Colour Options and select User Defined, you can specify which colours are used in the plot chart.  Change them all to the same shade of grey and hey presto, a monochrome stress plot you can animate without all the rainbow colours.

           

          If there's a way of achieving true model colours (including RealView graphics), I would also be interested to learn of it.
