UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE

I remembered (at 5:00 AM this morning, jeeze!!) when you switch from one GFDL FH (forecast hour) to another, PCGRIDDS32 will complain about the new file being a different grid projection & will redraw the map background for that new grid before any data is plotted. I have not tried it out to see how "smooth" that process is within a macro but it's the best that can be done for now.

Good luck,

Jeff,
From what I can tell, the map project stays the same (at least for parts of the forecast cycle) but the plotted grid data moves along within it so I didn't get the "different projection error". I tried what you said and the real trick is to hope NGB2PCG32 decoded the files in order so the output files (A-V) will match the times (6-126). Then after manually loading the files (A-T) hopefully your macro will match the times order you've loaded.
I had to include the SFHR in the macro for each FIL1 command and hope they lined up.

It worked in a little trial I ran after some macro tweaking and feeding the GRIB files manually one by one to NGB2PCG32.

clear animation cue help

Post by arubawx »

hi i've tried a anim of the gfdl loop ...it loop great ... but for some reason pcgridds32 puts the last frame of the previous anim in the macros anim... the weird thing is that when you do animations from the cmd line you wont get this prob ... just when you write macros animations ... any help will be great ... here's the macro

ANIM
loop
FIL1
sfhr 00
bknt 35m/lat/lon/map
endl
loop
FIL2
sfhr 06
bknt 35m/lat/lon/map
endl
loop
FIL3
sfhr 12
bknt 35m/lat/lon/map
endl
loop
FIL4
sfhr 18
bknt 35m/lat/lon/map
endl
loop
FIL5
sfhr 24
bknt 35m/lat/lon/map
endl
ENDA
