Hello Meeple, I am having some difficulty creating real time visualizations of the simulation I am trying to build. The h5utils package included/mentioned in the reference/resources listed didn't install, which according to this guy ( http://novelresearch.weebly.com/installing-meep-in-windows-8-via-cygwin.html) is a common problem. He suggests using matlab, which I tried, but matlab doesnt image .h5 file formats. I could use a converter, but this is cumbersome as the usefulness of visualization is in the prototyping/debugging phase of the simulation. I also tried this guys fix ( http://nikodem.blogspot.ca/2015/12/installing-meep-under-windows.html) which also didn't work as well as trying to reinstall the h5utils package/MEEP in a unix environment (virtual machine + ubuntu) which again, did not work.
My current solution is using hdfviewer. This works ok. I can use an append command to collate all of the .h5 outputs and create a video. This is not ideal as it takes forever to create a video and the resolution is bad on top of not being able to pause, step forward, step backwards, or save to file. What are your imagining solutions? How are you getting around the problems I have mentioned above? Is there something obvious I am missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, -Ramie
