Hi,

here is an idea:

Let's assume, your slice is in XY direction and with no Z component.

- open "Filters->Alphabetical->Calculator" with your slice as source
- Formula is:
iHat*volPointInterpolate(U)_X + jHat*volPointInterpolate(U)_Y + kHat*0
- Now make a StreamTracer[WithCustomSource] on the Calculator filter.
