using timeseries stored in a vtk xml file
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
I would like to be able to store multiple time steps in a single vtk_xml file (no problem) and process them with paraview. Storing multiple time steps is supported in the vtk xml format however when opening such a file paraview tells me that there is only a single timestep. googling for some usefull comments resulted in some unsettling info. It seems that this is indeed not supported in paraview and that i will have to use the paraview format. however however this file type is more or less a list of vtk xml files (if I understood correctly). Does that mean that if i want to use any vtk based storage method i will have to store each time step in a separate file? and does this also mean that i will have to store the mesh info for each time step? We work with a fixed mesh and i am looking at storing hundreds of timestep.
