I am trying to define the translation of my overset mesh using a user defined field function. I have created a field function with units of velocity, with vector definition and with the three components specified (see attached image).

What is the syntax for applying this field function to the translational velocity box in my translation motion? I have attached what I have currently in a second image.

Just remove the [0], you want to refer to the entire vector function.
