Post Processing Comparison of Files


I feel like this should be a relatively straight forward thing to do, but I'm relatively new to this so I'd appreciate any insight. I was wondering if there was a way to compare results of two identical meshes from two jobs (different load conditions) and visualize the difference between the values in the Abaqus viewer (or elsewhere). Essentially I want to be able to visualize a mesh of either a % difference or absolute difference between the two models. I've already used the field output option so I can calculate whatever differences or values I am interested in, I am just wondering what the best way to visualize this is and if there is an easy technique to do so using the Abaqus viewer?
