How can I speed up / down the animation of Flow Simulation ??
I can't find any button to control the speed.
Don't know if there is personally. Can you export an .avi/video format and slow it down with other software?
I assume you're talking about things like particle studies? You can create animations of moving through section planes or time steps of a transient simulation using the animation tools which will let you define the duration of the animation.
Unfortunately for things like flow trajectories and particle studies I've never found anything to adjust the speed of those built-in animations.
No, not only the particle studies.
I am talking about playback speed.
You can find " x1.0 , x1.5, x2.0 ..." buttons in "Motion Study."
But I can't find one in Flow Simulation.
On GIF you can see the arrows are too fast to be seen...
I want them to be slowed down that I can see how the flow exactly behaves.
Been so long I can't figure out how to get flow trajectories to appear, so here's my shot at a workaround, what about only showing slow moving trajectories (see pic)?
Or what about reducing the number of flow pipe trajectories, might help a bit.
I did find avi's of old studies I did, so somehow I recorded them from Flow. Once out of flow, seems like they'd be easy to slow down with secondary software, even if you download a trial version of something. Is an extra step that shouldn't be necessary though, should be something in Flow.
Think I got it. Look at the image, where there is a Less button, used to be a More button. Hit the More button to get the animation playback stuff to appear. Drag the pink diamond to a longer time, I believe this will slow down your trajectory results.
Thank you Kaiser.
But I am using SW2015 SP0 and can't find
less or more button as you shown above...
Crap, I'm out then. I only have Flow on an older version, 2010. Did they really take out functionality? Anyone know?
I've got a simulation crunching so I can't experiment in the background.
If I recall correctly, there is "Play" when you RMB on the the flow trajectory, but there is also "Animate". Play gives what Jesse is seeing which is very "what you see is what you get", while Animate brings up the tabs along the bottom that gives you the control that Mark is talking about. That's why I said that the Animation tools give you more control over duration
i think mark's suggestion is to increase the length of the animation rather than to use the "more" button to unlock functionality to slow things down
the help should tell you if there is something you're missing
