Array selection on .vtm multi-block reader
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
I noticed that when I load a .vtm file, I cannot select which data fields to load. This requires me to load the entire file into memory, after which the Pass Arrays filter allows me to take the required data field forward in the pipeline. If I load other formats (e.g. CGNS and .vtu) I can choose which field to load.
It would be very nice if this can be added.
Comment from the discussion in the mailing list by Andy Bauer: "Multiblock data sets aren't required to have the same fields defined over all of the blocks. That doesn't necessarily mean this can't be done, it just means it may not be quite as straightforward and/or clear as for the data set readers."
I have seen in ParaView that an array can also be "Partial". Maybe that is also the solution in this case?
