Hi Leonardo,

There are handy options in the pgstar namelist.  To output pngs of the MAIN plot window, you'll want to set MAIN_file_flag = .true. and then MAIN_file_dir = 'pgstar_out', or wherever it is you want the plots to end up.

There are other options too (for example, what to name the files, how often to output, etc), but those first two should get you started.

If not, is there a (or some) command(s) I must add to the inlist for it to save png's? I noticed there are some tutorials for making movies, but they assume we already have the png's... and, well, I don't have them. I could take screenshots, but I don't think that's the smartest way to do this.
