Powerful Animations with Keyframing

Make great movies with ease using keyframing

This tutorial demonstrates basic functionality of VisIt’s keyframing feature to produce powerful movies with relative ease. In this demonstration, multiple aspects of the visualization are animated simulatneously including the database time-state, the view (rotation and zoom) and the plot’s attributes.

Some of the aspects of the keyframing window are difficult to master and the interface is still somewhat idiosyncratic. For example, it isn’t possible to remove states from keyframes once created. Sometimes you have to exit VisIt and start over to fix such issues. However, setting these minor issues aside, it is possible to create fairly sophisticated animation sequnences with VisIt’s keyframing feature.
