Cross-sectional deformation

Hello! :)
I am an Opensees user.
As you know, the graphical ability of Opensees is relatively poor. I wonder whether STKO has a feature for visualising the cross-sectional deformation of any element in order to identify the local failure throughout the cross section. If it is possible, may I request you any application material like video, picture etc.?
Thank you

Hi Rafael!

I have been using STKO for a few months but I can tell you that it has features of visualising the cross-sectional deformation in order to identify the local failure.

Here I found some videos from their Youtube channel (Asdea Software Technology) about:
