Dear Christophe, Thank you for answering:) Here is a link <https://www.dropbox.com/s/x0n3jb7tmidhkfg/spring_chain0.zip?dl=0> to a zipped MED file (do let me know in case the download doesn't work). It is an animation of a chain of cubes undergoing rigid motion. It includes several vector and scalar fields spanned on the mesh.
When I untick all views, but 'displ', and select 'Vector field display'->'Displacement' then I can animate the motion with 'displ' magnitude coloured on top of that:) If you could show me how to animate 'displ' as displacements, while displaying 'linvel' magnitude on the displaced mesh instead, that would be helpful:) Also it would be nice to learn how to: * display individual components of vector fields as colour maps on the displaced mesh, * display animated vector fields on the displaced mesh instead of the reference mesh.
