Animate Time Dialog
The Animate Time Dialog window is used to define temporal animation of transient evaluation by automating changes to the evaluation time point T of Boundary Conditions window.
|TRANSIENT-option: Solving and evaluating time dependant dynamic, periodic problems when heat capacity effects
are concerned is
only possible with an active TRANSIENT-Option of the program.
The temporal animation will be executed in specified time intervals continuously updating evaluation windows (Results report, Results 3D window) once these are open an boundary condition applied. Results 3D window rendering can be optionally recorded to an AVI file.
Remark: The AnimateTimeSettings for each MainPeriod of the latest animation started are retained within application settings (Start, End, Step, currently set in AnimationTimeDialog)
The Recording to AVI part of the window will be active if there is an active Results 3D window rendering only, otherwise it is shown disabled.
|Record animation to AVI File||If checked the image frame created for each time step will be recorded to a file.|
Prior to start of recording a dialog will ask you to specify the file name to record to.
If the checkbox is cleared the animations started is reflected visually in the results shown only.
|Recorded frame rate||Specify the frame rate for later playback.|
|frame duration||The reciprocal value of frame rate. Each time step frame will get the specified duration (for later playback)|
|effective video duration||Overall duration of later playback of the created file (number of frames * frame duration).|
|Prompt for Compressor options||If checked the operating system provided compressor options will queried prior the recording to a file will be started.|| |
Remark: This VideoRecordingSettings (FrameRate, PromptCompressorOptions; currently set in AnimationTimeDialog) are saved within application settings (of the latest recording started successfully).
|Start||Will start iterating the evaluation time point within the specified interval|
|Stop||Will stop the iteration.|
|Cancel||Will close the window (and stop the iteration too)|
