Has anyone come across an error when importing Fluent data into Paraview using the Ensight format in getting incorrect values? In my case I get negative values of an all positive variable (the absolute value of the u'v' Reynolds stress) when using the Ensight binary format in Fluent. When using the ASCII format, I get the appropriate values. The ASCII values appear as: AsciiData.jpg

where the binary data gives the following results when the negative values are removed: BinaryThreshold.jpg

This behavior is consistent for either node or cell centered value exports and exists in the imported values itself, not just the slices. I am unsure which program is causing the issue, but I would like to narrow down the problem if possible.

I posted the same issue on the Paraview forum here:
