[Paraview] Skinfriction, streamlines etc

There are two ways:
1) Create a vector of your skin friction components using the calculator.
Turn on Surface LIC (you'll require GPU support for this to work).
2) Create a vector as above. Extract your region of interest with Extract
Block. Use Mask Points and set it to random and give it a sensible number.
Then use streamlines with custom filter. Your input is the Extract Block,
your source is the Mask Points, and your vector is skin friction.
hope this helps,

Hi I'm new to Paraview, I'm looking for a way to visualize the skinfriction
as an oil pattern plot over an object imported via ensight. In fluent it's
very simple but I don't know the steps for doing it in Paraview. I have seen
multiple examples of this on Internet but I can't get it to work. I'm using
a desktop with windows 7.
Many Thanks in advance
