I'm new to using yt, though I'm an experienced python and matplotlib user.
I've been doing runs with FLASH and would like to be able to plot the
results with matplotlib. I've used yt "interactively" in an ipython
notebook and found it a bit cumbersome - e.g. you can't pan and zoom like
you can with matplotlib. On the other hand yt has some nice facilities for
accessing the data. So my question is, how do I get a slice, such as is
plotted using the yt.SlicePlot function, in an array that I can then
manipulate, plot, etc.? If I do:
ds = yt.load(file)
slc = ds.slice(2,0.)
d = slc['density']
I have a YTArray that's apparently 1-D:
I should mention that this is a 2-D, cylindrically symmetric (r-z) run.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
