Well, it's not as easy as you might hope.  Here's a thread at the FDS users forum that lists 3 different ways to go:

Your options are basically:

  • Save out a bunch of still images, then stitch them together into a movie using another tool.
  • Use a screen recorder and manually control Smokeview while you record the video.

I've seen good results from both techniques.

Thanks for help, once again :) I've made it  ;D

I prefer to use "VideoEncoderGui" it's free and you can find it at http://virtual.vtt.fi/virtual/proj6/veg/#downloads
