[Paraview] How to slice a 3D vector field?

A few tips for using the point source to seed streamlines on a planar dataset:

* Set the radius of the seeds to 0
* Set the number of seeds to 1
* Use the 'p' button inside the 3D window to place the point on a
visible surface. Only works when the 3D widget is visible

For line source, you can use 'p' twice to place the two end points.
