Hello.
I am trying to simulate flow in a bifurcating channel (one inlet named INLET and 2 outlets coupled as OUTLETS) with surface film on it. The solver I'm trying to use is reactingParcelFilmFoam. But I face the following error:

AMI: Creating addressing and weights between 56 source faces and 101 target faces
--> FOAM Warning :

FOAM aborting

For creating the surface film I use extrudeToRegionMesh. Is there any way to run this case without having the new surface films boundaries as cyclic? The polymesh generated by default after extrudeToRegionMesh is as follows:

(
INLET
{
type patch;
nFaces 56;
startFace 23224;
}
OUTLETS
{
type patch;
nFaces 101;
startFace 23280;
}
wallFilmFaces_top
{
type patch;
nFaces 15535;
startFace 23381;
}
region0_to_wallFilmRegion_wallFilmFaces
{
type mappedWall;
inGroups 1(wall);
nFaces 15535;
startFace 38916;
sampleMode nearestPatchFace;
sampleRegion region0;
samplePatch region0_to_wallFilmRegion_wallFilmFaces;
offsetMode nonuniform;
offsets nonuniform List<vector>
