add dynamic text in *.plt file

Postby tuanmsu » Fri Mar 28, 2014 7:08 am

Hi Everyboydy!

I have a number of files with extension is *.plt and I'm trying to make a animation.

Is there any way to add a dynamic text showing a time?

I appreciate your helps in advanced.

Hello tuanmsu, it's easy to do what you ask.

Use the Tecplot menu: File > Load Data File(s) > Tecplot Data Loader > Data Loader dialog box

At the bottom of the Data Loader dialog box > please click the Multiple Files button > you may now select all your PLT files

To animate, use the Tecplot menu: Data > Edit Time Strands

Here is a detailed tutorial on time animation:

To show the dynamic solution time, add a text box and use this string: &(SOLUTIONTIME)

Hi Straton,

Thank you very much for your helps.

The issue I have been facing is *.plt files are not text file. These files were extracted from 3D tecplot file. I think it was saved as binary file. That's why I could not add text box as your hint.

Is there still any way to add solution time ?

Thanks

Actually, this is not entirely correct. As part of the *.plt binary format, a user can add auxiliary data records when the binary file is being constructed. If the data is 3D extracted data from Tecplot, a user could do the extractions to a zone, attach aux data to the zone, then output the entire data set to a binary file. The dynamic text is really stored in two segments; the metadata in text form is in the binary, while the function that generates the display is the &(auxzone[Q]:name) is in a layout or style sheet. Both are needed to generate the "dynamic text" as the binary has the text string and the &() construct places that text string.

Alternately, the layout can have commands that generate the aux data then plots it, but the data can be stored in a binary file.
