Problem with writing fields with foamToVTK
I'm very new at OpenFOAM and I can't solve the following problem. Please help me or send a link to solution (I tried but couldn't find it).
I had run 2D axially symmetrical calculations based on chtMultiRegionFoam tutorial (see the case attached). Mesh is very simple, hand-written in blockMeshDict. Then I created two regions using setSet. When I launch chtMultiRegionFoam, it seems that calculation are OK with no errors. Then I write "foamToVTK -time 500" and it still seems to be OK. I get the following on screen:
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //
Create mesh for time = 500
Internal : "/home/kirill/openfoam/KS_test/8_wedges_from_BlockMesh_multiRegion/VTK/8_wedges_from_BlockMesh_multiRegion_5000.vtk"
Original cells:200 points:451 Additional cells:0 additional points:0

Patch : "/home/kirill/openfoam/KS_test/8_wedges_from_BlockMesh_multiRegion/VTK/wedge_faces/wedge_faces_5000.vtk"
But the problem is: when I open .vtk file with ParaView, I cannot see temperature field. I see only what is shown in attached screenshot - cellID and cellNormals. Still, in the folder "500" there is normal "T" file with good values.
Can anyone please help me, how to display temperature field in ParaView?
