  4. make the format of the numbers independant of the system

    In the calculator, the format of the float depends of the language of the system.
    0,2 in french for example.
    0.2 in english.
    That should be independant.

  5. Support of integration points in finite elements

    Paraview is a wonderful program. What is please the current status of integration points on unstructured mesh ? Mapping of stress/strain to nodes presents a lot of troubles and may violate discontinuity. Thanks.

  6. Keyboard shortcuts

    It would be nice to have the ability to associate all kinds of Paraview actions with keyboard shortcuts. Currently, I see shortcuts only for basic actions like Open File etc.

  7. Pack GUI widgets tighter on Mac

    On Mac, all the GUI components have wide spacing (such as in the toolbars and the inspectors). Although this wide spacing is typical of Mac applications, ParaView has many more options than a typical application. All these GUI components are encroaching on the views and tend to make you have to scroll more through options. I thus advocate packing all the widgets tighter. Although it will look a bit less friendly, it will be more functional.

  8. Improve parallelization for multi-processor machines

    Since virtually all computers have at least 2, rather 4 or even more cores, it would be great to be able to utilize them.

    For now, I haven't found a way to to postprocess OpenFOAM data or StarCD data in parallel on one machine and gain a speed-up. (infact, setup via "mpirun -np2 pvserver" decreased performance to 0.5x). I have read that the "not-legacy" VTK reader is parallel, so could there be at least a converter from old-VTK to new VTK? (if the reader is the problem)

  9. Allow frequently used filters to be added to the common filters toolbar

    It would be great if you could support a customizable toolbar option, so that I can add frequently used filters to the existing common filters toolbar, rather than having to navigate to Filters->Recent

  10. add X3Dom export to get a easy webgl rendere

    ParaView has already a nice X3D exporter. Would be very easy and useful if somebody would create an additional X3Dom exporter by adding some static lines to the X3D exporter. This would allow to render the data with WebGL in a web-page without a plugin. Example: http://x3dom.org/x3dom/example/x3dom_paraviewExport.xhtml

  11. Incorporate interactive deformation tools to manipulate meshs and contours

    This could be very useful for those who want to interactively deform and visualize resulting meshes, similar to what is professionally available in many CAD packages. Simply click on a surface and extrude, or click on a mesh vertex and reposition

  12. Add support to terrestrial laser scanning data

    Laser scanning data are typically in xyzRGB format, where xyz are the coordinates and RGB are columns for the R, G, and B colours (values from 0...255 for each). The current support for only one colour field could be extended to define the colours through three different fields. In addition, laser scanning data, i.e. point clouds, may contain points up to billions, in which case long coordinates may hinder the calculation time needed for the visualisation. Therefore it is suggested to build an filter or process that only takes into account the changing parts of the coordinates.

  13. Snapping

    Add a snapping function for sources, i.e. when creating for example splines, snapping of control points to re-existing features on the pipeline would be useful.

  14. Add filters to edit/move selected points or create labels at cell/point selections.

    Sometimes it would be useful if I could move selected points by a vector.
    Also, it would great if I could set label values at cells and points, which could be used for boundary conditions in e.g. FEM codes. The option could be to create an array with default values and set a given value at the selected nodes.

  16. Add native support for reading in LAMMPS data.

    It seems odd that despite Sandia's involvement in both LAMMPS and ParaView, ParaView can't read in native LAMMPS output files from simulations.

  17. automatic rescaling option for the colormap

    It will be great if paraview has an option to enable automatic rescaling for the color map. This is useful to compare the results easily with other software that enables the colormap to be rescaled automatically such as matlap.

  19. Writing to Paraview from an external program

    Paraview operates/implements a client-server paradigm. This suggests that it may be possible for an external (e.g. C++ application) to communicate with a running instance of Paraview, by sending it commands (e.g. open legacy VTK file) via the port attached to the server. Such a feature would be ideal for:

    - debugging programs that output VTK data.
    - automatically loading or unloading data to Paraview e.g. at the end of a smilation

    We are working on this feature as well as the ability to linking the ParaView engine with the simulation (aka co-processing or in-situ processing)

  20. Remove legend ticks !!!

    I think the visibility of the ticks on the legend should be optional...
