Node-centered Boxlib data

Paraview does not appear to identify node-centered boxlib data as a “point array” but as a “cell array”. Instructions to reproduce:

  • Check out amrex from
  • Compile Tutorials/LinearSolvers/MultiComponent using make
  • Run the example
  • Open the output, solution in Paraview, and perform a slice.

(See image below) Note that the data (var1, var2) appear in the “Cell Array” box not the “Node Array” box. Also, there are bands of gray cells which appear to be artifacts of treating the nodal data as cell data.

Is this an error in Paraview or an error in the output file? VisIt is able to read in the nodal data correctly.
