A MATLAB user recently asked how we could make a visualization similar to this one.
I was a little surprised that we were able to do the visualization, with interactivity in less that 15 lines of code.
d = flow; d = shiftdim(d,2); x = 25; y = 26; z = 21.59561; v = 3.22068; h = slice(d,x,y,z) d(:,:,z:end) = nan; isosurface(d,-v) set(h,'edgeColor','none') axis equal zlim([0 size(d,3)]) colormap spring
This video makes use of cell mode to get the interactivity. You can see how something like this could be done with a GUI to get the interactivity that you might want.
If you like this kind of thing, Slice-o-matic, will be good for you.
