This package contains simple visualization scripts which work similar to Matlab's quiver, quiver3, trisurf or related functions, but in contrast, they pipe the data to vtk-files which may be called and visualized via Paraview, Mayavi2 or others.

Note: If You have any suggestions or discover any bugs, please let me know and send me an eMail. This is my very first public release and i would like to improve it whereever I can -- Your help is kindely appreciated!

Is it possible to add an optional variable VALS to vtkquiver as in vtktrisurf in order to colorize the quiver vectors?

>> Romain W: Hi, is it possible to actually generate the streamlines from the glyphs, once exported to paraFoam?

Since vtkquiver stores only the vectors without underlying mesh, such a one has to be generated first. For instance, in ParaView:

1. Load pvd file that was generated by vtkquiver
2. Filter -> Delaunay 2D
3. Filter -> Stream Tracer
4. In Stream Tracer, set 'Interpolator Type' to 'Cell Locator' and set 'Seed Type' to 'Line Source'
