>> Dear Paraview enthusiasts: good day. We are trying to visualize
>> madagascar-created (http://www.ahay.org/wiki/Main_Page) data files using
>> paraview (4.3.1). These output files are either binaries or .vpl (
>> http://www.ahay.org/wiki/Tutorial#VPLOT). When using madagascar's viz
>> tool they look "like a movie"; 2D representation of a moving field. We are
>> however unable to visualize this using paraview but we really would like to.
>> Has any of you encountered this problem? Any suggestions will be very
>> Thank you very much.
>> My best, Martín
