ParaView: Streamline Vectors

I would like to visualise short streamline vectors in ParaView.


I searched the documentation but only found the possibility to show continuous streamlines from the inlet to the outlet by using the "stream tracer" filter.

Does anyone have a clue how to manage this?

use the gliph tool, with 2d arrow option and set the last option field ( vector, scalar...) to off. then you can adjust the length of the arrows with the scale factor ;)

Thanks a lot. Now it's working! And it's been so close... ;)

you're welcome ;) the impact with paraview is not as straightforward as it can seem to be...

make a slice before the Glyph filter and you wil have the same result.
