Different behavior between ASCII and BIN
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
The two associated Paraview files came from the same computation, performed using an application based on the VTK library. There is a difference only in the format: one is binary and the other one is ASCII. The animation is good with the binary file, but not good with the ASCII file:
- Load file from the meppen4_proj_sb_asci.tgz archive
- Color a presentation by the ECRO field
- Start animation => Animation is played until the 41 step, after this step the following error message is displayed:
ERROR: In /dn20/salome/rnv/PRODUCTS_BUILD/PARAVIEW_DEV/ParaView-4.1.0_SRC/VTK/IO/XML/vtkXMLDataReader.cxx, line 484 vtkXMLUnstructuredGridReader (0x443bb60): Cannot read cell data array "ECRO" from PointData in piece 0. The data array in the element may be too short.
But seems this problem can be reproduced also in the ParaView-4.1 application, for that load the file from the meppen4_proj_sb_bin.tgz archive, export it in the VTK Unstructured Grid (VTU) format in the ASCII Data Mode, load obtained file in the ParaView and perform steps (1)-(3), the result is the same.
About a data to reproduce a problem: unfortunately files to reproduce the problem too big and I can’t attach files in the mantis. To obtain these files please send request to the firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you link and password to the FTP server, or alternatively I can upload these files to the any provided server.
