Rivulet panel post-processing

I tried the new OpenFOAM solver reactingParcelFilmFoam through the tutorial reactingParcelFilmFoam/rivuletPanel. The computation is ok.

However I do not succeed in the post-treatment.

I used the foamToVTK utility but I can not plot anything in ParaView.

How can I watch my film flow ?
Thank you for your help,

Nobody knows how to visualize the rivulet surface film flow as describe in the OpenCFD presentation :

I tried

and then in paraview I made a glyph of the wallFilmFaces*.vtk but I am far away from the expecting result...

Any update?
Hi all,

any updates on that topic? I'm trying as well to find a way to show the film variables in paraview, but I didn't success until now.

Comments? Ideas?
