I am a student in engineering and am using ANSYS Fluent at my university.
I would like to ask you a question about saving the animation as a MPEG.
I am transient calculations to model the fluid over the airfoil and would like to save it as an MPEG, but am struggling to save the video of the animation. I see where I can select save as "Video File" but I am unable to save as MPEG. I tried saving it as the "Video File", but when I play it it rushes through in less a second. I tried changing the speed and am having no luck. Can you help?

I suggest you to please refer to Fluent’s user guide: 33.19. Animating the Solution (ansys.com)
If you are not able to access the link, please refer to this forum discussion: https://forum.ansys.com/forums/topic/using-help-with-links/#latest

Yes, I clicked the write button and when it was complete I opened the video file that was saved. However, this video file is a little blurry and only lasts for 1 second. I asked my teacher and he had no idea what to do and said it normally works. Will the student license allow me to save the video?

Thank you for helping! I read the Fluent User Guide but do not have all of the options that it mentions. When I try playback the animation, the video options button is greyed out. Do you know if this feature works on the student version? I shared a video of the problem below:

Thank you for all of your help!

I cannot, and I am sure others here as well, or will not, download from external sites. Use pictures which can be much more insightful for debugging purposes. Plus, they can be hosted on the same server as the nice forum that ANSYS has set up for us.
Have you tried using the TUI to create the video? The cxa animations are under /solve/animate/playback. The other thing is you could just output the individual images and then use any number of other programs, even websites, to stitch them into a video.
The biggest problem I see, is that you only have 30 frames. At a standard ~24 frames per second, there is no wonder your video is only 1 second long. Even if you increased the spacing between frames, there isn’t much there.
