If you run channelOodles tutorial and then postprocess it with postChannel, you obtain a correct u.xy and uv.xy, but the data in v.xy and w.xy are oscillating.

Running the same case with OF 1.3 and using the 1.3 tool worked OK, but it's not easy to cross-check because OF 1.4 uses volSymmTensor while 1.3 doesn't.

It seems a post-processing issue, but the only difference I found during my quick check to the postChannel tool is in the use of the volSymmTensorField for R.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance,
Alberto Passalacqua
