convenient way to view DimensionedInternalFields ?
 
sprayFoam (and other lagrangian codes) generate fields every time-step
related to the various lagrangian source terms and whose type is

volScalarField::DimensionedInternalField;

however, it doesn't appear to be possible to view these in paraview
(ver 3.12 and presumably earlier versions). Aside from forcing a
redefinition in software to "volScalarField" etc., anyone aware of
a utility that will make a convenient conversion? (foamToVTK
also fails to make these fields visible).

A laborious alternative would I suppose involve manually editing
the fields by adding
in boundary conditions etc. so it "looks like" a volScalar/volVector
field to paraview.

Am I missing something else here I wonder?

Many thanks,

Richard K.
