I am trying to generate streamlines of a flow around an elliptical cylinder.
I used the `stream tracer` filter, but the streamlines are not evenly spaced. Looking at the image attached below, there are more streamlines on the left side of the domain than on the right side. How can I make the number of streamlines on both sides the same?

I'm just looking for an answer to that I also got to use the "stream tracer" filter and just like you I couldn't follow the bottom lines that are not evenly spaced

I used OpenFoam, but I can see you are using Ansys. They are two different Softwares. In OpenFoam, I noticed I specified a wrong line parameter in the streamTrace properties.
