1. Select the Visualization module if it isn't already selected.
2. Select the Result drop down menu and select the desired result to view. In this example I selected Field History > NT11.
3. Select Animate > Time History ( you can select other options but this is what is most commonly used)
4. Select Animate > Save As...
5. Complete the Save Image Animation box. Be sure to make a unique name and select the file type that you want (.mov in this example because I've had lots of problems with .avi files). Select the Capture: Current Viewport or All Viewports option if you have multiple viewports. You can select the Capture Viewport Decorations and Capture Viewport Compass so that each frame has more information and you can tell what step you are in at any given time. Finally select a very low frames per second rate. I usually do one or two frames per minute because I spend hours working on a simulation that I want other people to watch it for 30 seconds and not 3 seconds. This of course depends on your output rate but for any simulation with many steps your output rate will be low to conserve gigabites so make
your frames go slowly. An art major once told me that it takes at least 15 seconds of looking at a picture to take in what is happening.
6. Watch your movie!
