Thank you very much for developping this convivial software which helps me a lot for my research. 
I would like to visualize a field (scalar or vectorial) on a deformed configuration at several time steps. On version 2.0.0 and following your suggestion, once I have loaded a displacement and a scalar views for the same mesh, I set for option of the displacement view : 
- Displacement for Vector display (to visualize the deformed configuration)
- and set in Data source the view of the scalar field I want to post-process. 

Unfortunately, I got an error which appears in the message console as: 
" Error : Incompatible external view: drawing self instead". 

Do you know if there something wrong in the way I did it ?
