antime

Mapdl.antime(nfram='', delay='', ncycl='', autocntrky='', rsltdat='', min_='', max_='', **kwargs)

Produces a sequential contour animation over a range of time.

APDL Command: ANTIME

Parameters
nfram

Number of frame captures (defaults to 5).

delay

Time delay during animation (defaults to 0.1 seconds).

ncycl

Number of animation cycles (defaults to 5). Available in non-UI mode only.

autocntrky

Auto-scales contour values, based on the overall subset range of values. The auto-scaling option defaults to 0, no auto-scaling.

rsltdat

The results data to be used for the animation sequence. This can be:

0 - Current load step data (default).

1 - Range of load step data.

2 - Range of time data.

min_

The range minimum value. If left blank defaults to the first data point.

max_

The range maximum value. If left blank defaults to the last data point.

Notes

The ANTIME command operates only on graphic display platforms supporting the /SEG command. It uses an ANSYS macro to produce an animation of contour values for the last plot action command (for example, PLDISP). After executing ANTIME, the ANIM command will replay the animated sequence.

This command functions only in the postprocessor.
