What is the advantage of 'Skip By' option?

If the CAE animation cycle contains a huge number of frames, user may fed up with time taken for a cycle.

This option helps user to reduce the cycle time, but view a better and complete simulation by skipping odd frames or two or more frames.

  • Consider the following image, which contains 201 frames.

  • It will consume more than one minute, if the time interval between frames is 0.5 seconds.

  • Number of frames can be reduced to 101 by skipping alternative frames.

  • Further it can be reduced to 67 frames by skipping two frames as below.
