Hey,

i am trying to use paraview as our new postprocessor for our Star-CD simulations. Since Star-CD comes with an Ensight converter, i tried to use this one to get a .case file for every .ccmp file i created in prostar for all the desired timesteps. I Need the Ensight Format because paraview can’t handle .ccmp files.

This actually works quite well (even for droplets) if i am only postprocessing one single .case file in paraview. But when i try to load multiple .case files grouped together in paraview it doesn’t recognize that these are multiple timesteps, so it is not possible to animate them or swap through These different timesteps…

Are there some Information missing in my .case files that paraview actually Needs? And could it be a Problem that prostar Always adds “0000001” to the Scalar date files?

Here an extract of an example how prostar writes the ENSI_408.CASE file:
