I am running simulations with IBAMR, a cfd library, that outputs data in samrai format. I would like to visualize this in paraview, but am getting errors from the samrai reader.
If I load the file, the amr mesh is selected by default and if I click apply, paraview returens the following error message:
ERROR: In /Users/kitware/dashboards/buildbot-slave/8275bd07/build/superbuild/paraview/
src/Utilities/VisItBridge/databases/AvtAlgorithms/vtkAvtSTMDFileFormatAlgorithm.cxx, line 346
vtkVisItSAMRAIReader (0x6000003f3f00): Unable to find nesting information for AMR dataset
If I deselect the mesh and select a field under “cell arrays” then plot, nothing happens. The files read and plot correctly in Visit.
Do you have any suggestions as to what to try to get this to work please?
I wrote to the SAMRAI team, and they said that they had not developed or tested the Paraview reader, and did not know how to diagnose the problem.
Is there anything else that could be done to diagnose why the reader might fail in this case, like some type or verbose or debug output from the reader? Or what aspect of the files could be creating the problem?
