9.10 Animation of Deformations
Normally, deformations of objects are displayed in their final state.
However, it is also possible to show the deformation process as an animation. To open the corresponding dialog box, use the menu option
- Results → Animation
or the corresponding toolbar button. To close the animated view, click the button again. You can also use the [Esc] key.
To define detailed settings for the animation process, use the menu entry
- Options → Program Options
in the Graphics dialog tab.
The animation of deformations can be saved as a video file. Arrange the animated graphic appropriately on the screen and then use the menu option
- Tools → Create Video File.
You may see a message about the OpenGL settings before the corresponding dialog box appears where you can define different settings for creating the video file.
Click the [Browse] button to specify the name of the video file in a separate dialog box.
The red [Record] button starts the recording and the blue [Stop] button stops it.
