We present MIBFV, a method to produce real-time, multiscale animations of flow datasets. MIBFV extends the attractive features of the Image-Based Flow Visualization (IBFV) method, i.e. dense flow domain coverage with flow-aligned noise, real-time animation, implementation simplicity, and few (or no) user input requirements, to a multiscale dimension. We generate a multiscale of flow-aligned patterns using an algebraic multigrid method and use them to synthesize the noise textures required by IBFV. We demonstrate our approach with animations that combine multiple scale noise layers, in a global or level-of-detail manner.
