CEI Launches New EnSight 10 for Improved CAE/CFD Visualization

Intuitive GUI Makes EnSight 10 More Powerful and Efficient for Everyday Use

 

Apex, N.C. and Nashville, Tenn. (January 17, 2012)—CEI Inc., maker of EnSight visualization software for computer aided engineering (CAE) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), today announced the debut of EnSight 10, the latest version of its powerful 3D visualization software for post-processing of CAE/CFD data and analysis. EnSight 10 features an all new, structured volume rendering capability and a streamlined user interface for analyzing and communicating complex simulation results. CEI unveiled EnSight 10 during the 50th Annual Aerospace Sciences Meetingof the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics that runs January 9-12 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.

EnVe Side-by-Side Video Editing

Side-by-Side Animation Example

There was a recent request in from a user:
I have two models, and I have post processed them the same. I have similar animations from each result. What I’d really like to do, is to paste the animations in a side-by-side mode so that there is a new single combined animation which show the two results side by side. This the best way of comparing two or more animations.
Now, in most video editors, you only paste front-to-back. Well, not EnVe. You can paste side by side, or top/bottom, or diagonal, etc.
The example zip file (download),  contains an example of this capability:
Case1.avi — animation which is 826×574 pixels, with 30 frames —> will become the lower left image
Case2.avi — animation which is 826×574 pixels, with 30 frames —> will become the lower right image.

case_combine.mtm — multi tile movie instruction file. Have a look. You give the filenames, format, and any offset you want to apply to each animation. You see that Case2.avi is offset by 826 pixels in the horizontal direction (shift to be on the right of the first one). You can use more than 2 files, and just specify the offset for each. The max resolution should be set appropriately (in this case of side by side, it is 1652×574). You could extend to compare 4 cases by offseting case 3 in the vertical pixel, and case 4 in the vertical + horizontal. 0,0 is the lower left hand point in the animation.

Open up EnVe, and drag this case_combine.mtm file into the main EnVe window. You can then write out a new animation, which will be a side by side comparison. Case12.avi is an example output from that.
Nice and easy? Not something that many other programs can do, particularly in the engineering sector.
