How to view the field during simulation

Hi,
I am using OptiFDTD to simulate a novel structure. When I watched those demo videos on this website, I found that the field evolution is shown during the simulation. But…I can not find it in OptiFDTD 12. Could you please tell me how to enable it?

Thanks!

It is shown here. From 20s to 30s in the video.

      That was the interface for the 32 bit version. This visualization was removed because it was decided that it impacted the performance of the simulation too much. Now you have the option of generating a video file that will display the field evolution as a function of time. In the Observation Areas you can choose to record certain components, under the Recording Data Components tab. When the simulation is run the video file is generated. You can play the movie file while the simulation is still running with VLC player. Other players require file to be finished but VLC can play the incomplete file without problem.
