From Zero to Hero: FieldView Basics

FieldView Basics

In this webinar, we show you the basics of using FieldView software. You can follow along by requesting a Free Trial. In the first FieldView Basics demonstration, we’ll cover creating high quality images and videos, working with objects, geometry and variables, material rendering, saving your work, and more! In the second demonstration, we’ll look at analyzing large simulation results with Parallel FieldView. And finally, we’ll show you an easy way to create and modify scripts to automate your workflow and work in batch. Be sure to check out our documentation, especially the Working with FieldView PDF.

If you are interested in a deeper dive to use FieldView with your own data, please contact us today at sales@tecplot.com. We are happy to host an in-depth technical discussion with you and your team.
