  2. Load field data from DiscreteData_t type node in CGNS file

    The CGNS standard suggests "DiscreteData_t nodes are intended for the storage of fields of data not usually identified as part of the flow solution, such as fluxes or equation residuals." However now the DiscreteData_t nodes seems ignored by Paraview (version 5.1.2). One has to put all field data in FlowSolution_t node in order to have the data been loaded by Paraview which breaks the CGNS convention.

  3. create the function to overlay charts in 3D render view

    VTK has the function of overlaying chart in 3D render view but ParaView cannot.
    This function will be useful to present the result in a one image as in StarCCM+

  4. Extract selection + Preserve only connected topology

    Add to this filter option to select only connected elements (linked by common nodes) when mesh consists of several components in one dataset.

  5. OS X Packaging strategy to support installation and removal of multiple ParaView Options

    Create a way that would allow an MDM solution like the JAMF Casper Suite to install update and manage multiple version of ParaView provide backward compatibility of ParaView.

    One of the solutions for ParaView would be to provide backward compatibility in newer version to older version. This is how most of the software vendors we deal with handle the multiple versions installed at the same time issue. Others create entirely new software like Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 and Office for Mac 2016 that are installed via pkgs and operate in parallel.

  6. improve windows 10 compatibility

    Windows 10 seems to have some incompatibilities with Paraview (v. 5.1.0), and sometimes crashes when opening .xdmf files. Also, when representing volumes, they do not look as good as in Ubuntu 14.04.

  7. Import block names during multi-block XDMF import

    Currently grid names are not imported during XDMF import. This would be very useful in case of multi-block data, where currently generic names are assigned. See also this post:

  9. Clipping along a polyline

    I have a turbine blade and a domain of symmetry which I want to cut into two halves along the camber line so that I can compute the average quantities in each half domain. Is there a way to clip the geometry along a poly-line such as the camber-line of the blade?

  10. ParaViewWeb and PlotOverLine

    Generally liked to have the possibility of using all different filters of ParaView inside ParaViewWeb.
    As PlotOverLine needs multiview, it would be nice to add this functionality to the frame of ParaViewWeb too.

  11. Create the ability to align sources (besides cone) along different axes

    It seems that most sources (cylinder etc.) only align along the Y axis. The ability to align then along a different axis would be very helpful.

  12. Save/Load of Animation Keyframes

    I sometimes have very complicated keyframe lists (a few hundred Time-Value pairs). It would be very useful to be able to Save and Load these to some sort of simple text file that could be created/edited outside Paraview

  13. Temporal Derivative Filter

    I'd like to have a filter that calculates the difference of my data (point data, cell data, etc.) compared to the previous time step, i.e. the time derivative of my data.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. expand the name patterns for temporal file series to include time represented as floats

    When importing a temporal file series (e.g. foo_N.vtk), paraview currently only recognizes N as an integer sequence (for instance where N=001,002,003,..). If the time series is named after a time represented by a float (e.g. N=0.5,1.0,1.5,... where you can think of that numbers as being seconds) the file series is not recognized.
    Since naming a file after it's simulation time seems to be a fairly common practice, it would be helpful to expand the naming patterns and allow for N to be a float and not only an integer.

  17. Add a shortcut for loading state

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

  18. Add opacity shortcut or button

    It could work in +/- 1/4 steps or cycle though 1/3, 2/3 and 1 opacity value.

  19. Allow "copy to clipboard" data from interactive probing at mesh points

    ParaView 5 brings the long-awaited interactive probing. I noticed the tool tip data can't be copied.
