Real time of the simulation in smokeviwer
« on: January 02, 2013, 06:52:10 am »

I have one doubted concerning smokeviwer simulation.
I want to make a simulation that will last 60 seconds.
In paragraph end time of Simulation Parameters I put 60 seconds.
The simulation resulting in the Smokeview, doesn’t take 60 seconds, the real time of the video simulation is about 16 seconds!!!.
What I have to do to get the video simulation running for real 60 second or other time?




What is the use for the option wall update increment?

In Smokeview, if you right-click, a menu will appear. On that menu, select Options > Max Frame Rate > Real Time.
