Default Relative velocity in MRFSimpleFoam

Hi Foamers,
I am running simulations on a wind turbine rotor blade using MRFSimpleFoam. I have OF 2.2.2.

Is there a simple way to obtain the velocity field relative to the rotating rotor blade? OF gives the absolute velocity as default.

I do know this thread:

But I wonder if there isn`t an easier way.
