irwin is on a distinguished road
i am tracking interface while using interFoam solver using code placed in the controlDict
type surfaces;
outputControl outputTime;
outputInterval 1;
surfaceFormat vtk;
interpolationScheme cellPoint;
type isoSurface;
isoField alpha.oil;
isoValue 0.5;
interpolate true;

log true;
interpolationScheme cellPoint;

This generate VTK file at every time step , Then I have to read that VTK file using paraFoam at each time step to extract the surface which is quite a tedious task . I am looking for any convenient method by which I can directly extract the surface in one go.
