Hello,
I am not able to display Contour of Velocity (isolines).
In the contour Panel, I just have the choice between p,k and epsilon.... but no U.
Is it a bug, or am I doing something wrong?
I use version 3.4.0 on XP

Ok I was doing it wrong.
Contour cannot be displayed with vectors, only with scalars.
So I had to create the scalar U=sqrt(U_x**2+U_y**2+U_z**2) and it appears in the drop list.

Hi,
You could add the calculator filter (Filter/Common/Calculator) and then put in the transformation Max suggested.
