[Paraview] multiple color legends on the same image

Some background information: ParaView makes the coloring for all variables of the same name consistent.  This is done to prevent misleading coloring when showing data from different parts in the pipeline or different data sets or different views.  If you want to break out of that behavior, you have to rename the field on one of the data sets.  John's suggestion is the easiest way to change the field name.

It's awful, but it works.

Use the calculator filter to copy one dataset to another. Change the name of the scalar array you are displaying. when you enable the colour legen for the new data, it will have a new name and so use a new colour lookup table. You can now display both independently.

Hi all,

I'm a bit of a newbie here, but I've been having some trouble trying to figure out a way of creating multiple color gradients and legends on the same image. In other words, I have an object that I use a contour filter for that should have a different gradient than another object with a different contour filter, but the moment I change the color gradient for one, the other automatically changes. Is there a way to create two contour filters with different color maps and legends?
