Hi Patrick,

I answered this question 5 days ago, but it never made it to the group.

Here it is the answer again:

in ListVectorFieldPlot3D  the color function gets the magnitude of the

vector as argument. Therefore, there is no direction info available. You

must use a trick to do this, e.g. you could use a counter to access the

original vectors:

n=5;

Pi,Pi/n}];

d=Flatten[d,2];

count=0;

ListVectorFieldPlot3D[d,ColorFunction->Function[{x},Hue[r=

d[[++count,2]];0.5+0.5 r.{1,0,0}/Sqrt[ r.r]]]]

hope this helps, Daniel
