Temporal derivative


I have velocity field data, is there a way to use existing filters to calculate the acceleration field?

HI @ebreard

This is possible but way complex than it should be.

If the timesteps progression is linear (eg: 0.1, 0.2, 0.3), you can use TemporalShiftScale to shift your timesteps and then PythonCalculator to compare between timesteps and do the computation.

If not, then it can only be done one timestep at a time, using ForceTime or TemporalArrayOperator.

Thanks, is there no plan to add this as a filter? Lots of folks would be using it

Not yet, one would need to invest some time or funding in order to get this going.
