    • 360 equi-rectangular option for camera to view with cheap VR Glasses

      It would be fantastic to provide an option to output a 360 screenshot or video using equirectangular projection.. or even direct scrren output so it may be streamed to smartphone in VR glasses and give CAVE like experience to the masses.
      It is yet possible to do this by making 4 videos with 100deg FOV and stitch them with "3D Stitching" software post-processing giving output like :

      • Adjustable colormap position

        I would find very useful to be able to set the colormap position in the same way of annotations, i.e. by specifying horizontal and vertical displacements from one of the four corners of the render view, on top of the current "standard" positions provided in the 5.4.1 release.

        Plus, it would be great to have an option to set those values once for all, i.e. for any variable on any render view and layout, along with the title and text/annotations font size and title text for a given variable name, which is now reset when the colormap is displayed in…

        • Possibility to plot streamlines from spherical data

          The only way to plot a streamline of a vector field is from cartesian data. It could be nice if spherical data can be used for this purpose as well.

          • 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)

            • 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).

                • Save the original node and cell ID in NASTRAN and PATRAN readers and read all data

                  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

                  • 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)

                    • 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 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.

                          • Extract the index from selected points, in the order they are selected and extract plane parameters from slice

                            Hi, I would like to extract the index of the points selected in the order I selected them. But when I choose extract selection and save the csv file, I get them ordered from small to big. Also I would like to save the point coordiantes and his normal when I choose slice. I see them in the box in the left, but there is no option to save them in a csv file. Thanks

                                • The solution for easy file import from SolidWorks to ParaView.

                                  I'd like to suggest some solution for easy import files from SolidWorks. I tried to do it, but there is only wrl file theoretically compatible. In practice, my SW 2014 and ParaView 5.2 dosn't interact. There is an ERROR: In C:\bbd\df0abce0\source-paraview\VTK\Common\ExecutionModel\vtkDemandDrivenPipeline.cxx, line 710

                                  • Load Materials on surfaces

                                    Now that OSPRay rendering seems to turn out really well, it would be really a plus if it could be added also the option to active material rendering (like metal, glass, plastic, etc.) on surfaces, instead of simple solid colors.

                                      I can not read my Ansys Structural case data in ParaView. I think it would be a great idea post-process Ansys Structural in Paraview.

                                      • Add real vector graphics

                                        With paraview 5 the export to vector graphic formats most often results in a rasterized image (http://public.kitware.com/pipermail/paraview/2016-February/036314.html). This is huge drawback of the new version. Please bring the old true svg, eps, pdf export back!

                                        • Add Drag and Drop and support 'open with' for pvsm files

                                          It should be possible to launch the program with a pvsm file without being prompted to select an importer for this file format (which is not even listed).
