Hello guys,

I was playing around with a new version of OpenFOAM dev based on OpenFOAM 5.0. I download it from:

I've installed it on my windows 7 and it runs well, including the solver (interDyMFoam).

However, the paraview result is really terrible. I can't get the same good result of "Reflect" filter in ParaView compared to older version of OpenFOAM (4.x).

I found that the paraview used in latest release I use is 5.4.1 64 bit, while the older version I use is 5.3.0 64 bit.

I attach the pictures here, picture0 is from new version of paraview and picture1 is from the older one.

Also, I attach two pictures of comparison of paraview version in detalis.

And the last, I only use three steps for this result:
1. Load the case file in paraview
2. Apply clip filter and use scalar option with alpha.water equals to 0.5
3. Apply Reflect filter with option of YMax and center equals to 0

I did the same for all paraview version I use here and the result was like the picture above.
I was planning to uninstall the previous version of OpenFOAM after the new install, but after this error happens, I think I need to keep the old version of OpenFOAM in case of emergency

Any help or explanation is appreciated!

Best Regards,
