i'm studying with the tutorial: boat in head wave. i used flat wave in vof wave model in stead of fifthorder wave. for convenience, i keep the boat fixed on the water suface. in my case, i want to show the wave pattern contour, but there is no such plot. is there any one can help me?

You can create a scalar scene first
Input for the parts is the iso-surface of volume fraction of water (value = 0.5)
Then for the scalar function you can use position -> laboratory -> z

To see the lines, you can go to the scalar scene
Open the Scalar 1 properties and change the Contour style to "Smooth Field + Lines"

Hope its what you want.
