I am interested in visualizing the evolution of ONLY stair-rod type of dislocations close to an interface in FCC metal, but I was not able to filter out other types of dislocations to see stair-rod dislocations in the simulation cell. Is there any way to visualize one type of dislocation in OVITO?



This is possible, but it requires extra steps. You need to export the results of the DXA modifier to a CA file. Then import the CA file again into OVITO. Now you'll have the possibility to disable the display of individual dislocation types, see the screenshot.
