Scientific result-processing using advanced tools such as Blender®
Tobias investigated advanced scientific data processing by using the open-source software Blender® a few years ago. The two training videos that are given below examines in an OpenFOAM® case using ParaView®, show how to export the data for Blender®, and how one has to set-up Blender® for a more advanced scientific data processing. However, the training video analysis only one scene. If one wants to render one's numerical data to generate videos, the procedure is identical, but here, one has to repeat the process for each single time step. For such cases, it is useful to use Python scripts that handle the data processing automatically. The videos will demonstrate the basic ideas of advanced post-processing and render capabilities in Blender®.
— Using scripts and own programs helps to make the advanced post-processing simpler —
Advanced post-processing or scientific data processing requires knowledge regarding third-party software in use. For Blender, the training videos are intended to give a short introduction with all necessary steps to allow one to investigate the topic easier. However, the videos are not aimed to tell how Blender works. There are a lot of other training videos available on YouTube which cover that particular topic. Tobias also does not know too much regarding the flexible and sophisticated software named Blender. For video rendering purposes, you can find two Python scripts below. Thanks for reading. By the way, did you know that Tobias tries to answer all his requests as soon as possible?
