Hello Reza,

there is no direct way to do this with OVITO. You can, however, render a series of *png files for the individual viewports and subsequently combine them to an animation using an external video encoding program. Could you tell me what operating system you are using, so I can give you a more specific answer.

Thanks Constanze for your reply,

I am using Windows 10. I appreciate it if you could recommend an external video maker to put all the viewports from OVITO in one frame.

Bests,

Reza.

Hello Reza,

I have never done it using Windows 10, but the Windows support suggests that the Photos app or the Movie Maker can do this.

Blender could be an alternative. It's free and open source, but I think it will take some time to learn.

You could also do it from the command line using ffmpeg.

Maybe other Windows users have better suggestions?

Thanks Constanze for your response,

I found this website:

https://www.apowersoft.com/create-video

It has an online launcher, and it has a very user friendly interface where you can split the screen easily and make your videos.

Bests,

Reza.
