    • support for gzipped nrrd files

      We and our colleagues (working in fly brain neuroanatomy) use the NRRD format. We have >100,000 NRRD images with data gzip encoded. gzip compression is useful because many images are sparse and compress by factors of >10 or even >100x.

      At least on the current v5.4.1 on mac gzip encoding is not supported.

        • Axes Grid Scaling

          The scale of the present Axes Grid is same for the all axes. So when I set Scale values on the Transforming property or Transform Filter, the values of grids become meaningless.

              • Extend supported file name endings to include *.encas files (Ensight case files)

                The EnSight case file name convention also includes *.encas files which have the same file format as the already available *.case, *.CASE, and *.Case files. ANSYS Fluent exports ensight files by default as *.encas files and these files are not recognized by Paraview. It would be trivial to also include the *.encas file name extension in the list of EnSight files and would make life a bit easier.

                • Add python shell in paraview configure

                  Due to the screen DPI now getting smaller and smaller, the python shell embedded in paraview lack of appropriate font adjustment, hoping to join customizable features about python shell appearance.

                    • delete parent with children in pipeline

                      Presently, a parent in the pipeline can only be deleted when all children have been deleted before. Suggestion to allow deletion of a parent with implicit deletion of all of its children (instead of throwing an error that parent cannot be deleted).

                      • Force or deactivate some Readers. Reuse the Paraview already running

                        1) I always work with xmdf files and every time I have to choose the reader to use in the menu, can we deactivate or force the use of a specific reader in the command line?

                        2) also if I run a second command line to run paraview (with a filename as argument) can we reuse the instance of paraview already running. (to compare results for example)

                        • Add an ability to view or probe the i, j, k indices in a structured grid

                          When checking solver results or input files of type structured grid it is important to have the ability to view the node indices in the zone (i, j, k) an not just a running number (for instance in the spreadsheet view)

                                For comparison to original file it might be beneficial to have the original node and cell ID`s preserved (those values exist in the file) and read all the existing data and not just the mesh

                                    • Import Azore CFD solver data

                                      The Azore CFD package has an export to VTK for ParaView use, but ParaView does not have an import directly from Azore. Would be useful to connect the two more completely.

                                      • create surface mass flow rate for all time steps

                                        filter for a surface or plane calculates the mass flow rate over time steps and we can plot over time

                                        • Create a reader for the Fieldview format (.fvuns).

                                          The .fvuns format is commonly used for creating animations in FLUENT. The reason is that you can export selected planes/surfaces (even with dynamic mesh), meaning that you will have lower file than when exporting the entire data set. For long transient animations, this format is therefor highly useful.
