    • Add super title for render view

      For those using render view for small multiples (e.g., subplots of different months of seasons of climate data), it would be nice to be able to add one super title overlying all the individual views upon export/screenshotting.

      This would be similar to `pyplot.suptitle` in python.

      • Draw ellipsoids/cylinders with specified orientation vector

        The default cylinder aligns along y-axis. It would be much helpful, if the users can specify the orientation vector of the cylinder directly inside the paraview.

        • Allow embedding into Jupyter notebooks

          Any chance we will be seeing the ability to add canned 3D scenes to a Jupyter notebook (much like the interactive plotly charts) - this would really make reports reading interesting. I think you're almost there with Paraview web!

            • Loading camara positions (.pvcc) by animation view, camara

              The tool to interpolate camera positions via the Animation view is very nice. But typing cam positions is very boring. In the dialogue you can use the current cam position. But I miss the possibility to load saved camera positions via the pvcc file.

              • Dark Theme Option in Settings

                Add the ability to choose a dark color theme at runtime. I image a checkbox in the settings/preferences.

                This would be very similar to the trends following MacOS Mojave's "Dark Mode" and would provide much-needed eye strain relief for those of us power users that are up all night making ridiculously awesome visualizations in ParaView.

                  • Alpha blending or opacity by data value

                    It would be great to set the opacity by a certain data value or set an alpha blending respectively.
                    E.g. you have a 3D object with a discrete density distribution. The density is illustrated by color. Every density value was determined with a certain accuracy. Now it would be great to illustrate cells with good accuracy opaque and cells will fade more and more by increasing errors.

                        • create an "Equirectangular View".

                          An "Equirectangular View" would be a fantastic addition to the software.

                          Right now being we are not even able to link camera movements relatively in order to create an "interactive cubemap". All linked cameras have to have the same position. That can be improved.

                          That would be a great start to an "Equirectangular View"

                            would be great to have a keyboard shortcut for load state (it's as useful as a shortcut for open).

                            • Three Arrows with Glyph Plot

                              Hello,

                              When I create a vector plot, the plot returns with three arrows representing each point instead of one arrow. How can I change from three arrows to one arrow?

                              • Format specification in Annotate Attribute data

                                The current "Annotate Attribute data" filter in Paraview does not have format specification options. As an example, when annotating say (0,0,0) element of a cell data array "U" with a value of "0.123456789" shows " U = 0.123456789" on the render view. It may be helpful to have a feature where one can specify the format (say "U = %5.2f") to display only "U = 0.12" on the screen instead of the 9 significant digits from the original data. Thanks!

                                  • Transform position relative to screen

                                    Add a feature to Transform filter, or a new filter, where you can transform something relative to screen. With that it would be possible to position a source with one click parallel to screen if the coordinate system doesn't align with screen.

                                    • Glyph Type text

                                      The (now rather ancient) visualization software OpenDX has the ability to show glyphs in text form. This glyphs represent the point values as a text string. The text glyph could be 2D (always oriented in the view plane) or 3D. I am aware that text values at a given position can be displayed using the labels of the selection display inspector. But this options needs a lot of user interaction and it seems not to be possible to compare the values of two different objects.

                                      Extending Glyphs to have a text representation would be very much apreciated.

                                        • Paraview VR version that supports use of NVIDIA IndeX plugin

                                          The NVIDIA IndeX plugin requires a .exe version of paraview VR which doesn't currently exist on the downloads section.
