The calculator-filter in ParaView is slow compared to other visualisation packages - e.g. 4.4 slower then the one in FieldView.
For CFD-applications is quite critical to have a fast calculation method - therefore - please speedup the calculator ...3 votes
Resolution: Use the Python calculator instead. It has a lot more functionality and is much faster.
Add the ability to add time varying annotation based on functions or filter output. Not just the animation time. (i.e. the max value of a contour or surface.) Or even support to modify animation time display so it shows in an hh:mm:ss format.3 votes
A new feature has been added to git-master (will be included in 4.0 release) to annotate using arbitrary values. Take a look at: http://paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView/Users_Guide/Annotation#Python_annotation_filter
For 3.6.0 the Mac install from cvs worked, namely the process ccmake, make, make install. I had been waiting for that for years, and was quite happy when it finally worked. But apparently it was not maintained from 3.6.0 to 3.6.2, because now it doesn't work. The worst part is that the GUI comes up and seems to function but generally crashes very quickly. There is no indication that the problem is with the install.3 votes
ParaView (3.8.1 32-bit and 64-bit) crashes in Windows 7 when clicking on 'Edit Color Map'3 votes
This is not reproducible with later versions. Please report on the mailing list or bug tracker with additional details, if possible, if the problem persists.
Please post to paraview-users mailing list with additional details. The developers may be able to help diagnose the problem.

It would be nice to export a set of images from timestep N1 to timestep N2 with a certain step DN (like each 3rd frame between timesteps 100 and 300).3 votes
With 5.5, this is supported as follows. Simply apply the “Extract TImesteps” filter to you reader and then move all pipelines coming out of your original reader to be based off this filter. You can customize which timesteps to process using parameterson “Extract Timesteps” filter.
Add the possibility to plot atomistic structures with a "ball and stick" renderer rather having only the wireframe one.3 votes
This is now supported. Try opening a molecule file e.g. caffeine.pdb in VTKData. Various rendering modes are also available including “Ball and Stick”, “Space Filling” and “Liquorice”.
The /Applications/paraview.app/Contents/Info.plist should contain the version number in which would change it from:
in case of version 5.0.0. This allows for better MDM management of the version.3 votes
Already supported. Verfied using OsX binaries for `ParaView-5.1.2-559-ga4acdb6-Qt4-OpenGL2-MPI-OSX10.8-64bit.dmg`
only one of the top twenty ideas are things you're actually working on, and most of them were suggested years ago. maybe you should start looking into, say, the top five. just a thought.
the only items here that you've worked on are easy things you were going to implement anyway. clearly you only develop ideas you are specifically paid to develop. so why does this forum even exist?3 votes
Plot over line of different timesteps (frames) into same plot3 votes
This will be supported with 5.5. Apply “Extract Time Steps” filter twice to extract the two timesteps of interest and apply “Plot over line” filter to each of the extract filters. Finally, you can show the output in the same Plot view to get the desired effect.
There are some of us who live in areas without high speed internet. The main Paraview source tarball is an estimated 3 hour download, and I don't trust a web browser to do that correctly. Being able to resume downloads is important too. Simple direct text links will work fine.2 votes
ParaView download page now has icons next to the download button that you can click on to get the direct download link. You can use wget to download using the download link provided.
At this moment we really struggle to get ParaView made visualizations into Oculus Rift environment. We are testing export of the scene with Unity 3D and Unreal engine and it is a lot of work to replicate the scene. Not mentioning that exported scene is static, have no options for turning layers/objects on/off and all the interactions/tools. When ParaView already has 3D --stereo mode dupport allowing a lot of --stereo-type like "Checkerboard" etc. It would be great to have "Oculus" as option there.2 votes
Keep developing ParaView. It's an amazing software. Thank you to all the people who were and are involved in its development.1 vote
Thanks for your support and encouragement.
Since v3.10 the precompiled binaries include MPI implementation to run ParaView in parallel, extremely handy!
My understanding is that such ParaView installation uses all cores it sees, desirable for one user workstations but problematic for many user systems.
Please consider adding a flag to the precompiled binaries for launching ParaView in "use only X CPU's" -mode.1 vote
This is available with the upcoming 4.0 release

Whether the newest Qt 5.4 is supported by Paraview 4.3?1 vote
Keep an option to have the Color Legend Title orientation as horizontal on top (or below) vertical color bars. version 5.4 now forces a vertical title that is sideways.1 vote
Fixed in 5.5 (https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/issues/17570)
The current developer forum is only for those working on paraview itself. As a paraview developer I have tried asking for help there and I seemed to be ignored. It would be nice to have a stack overflow like page for the class of paraview developers working on filters/sources/3dwidgets/writers and not necessarily the paraview application. Its just a matter of creating the page shouldn't be too bad.1 vote
It is totally OK to post such questions to ParaView developers. As it is on the ParaView users list. Developers follow both. Also, question more specific to algorithms can go to the 2 VTK lists, where is it more likely to receive more response due to a larger number of members. Keep in mind that ParaView is simply an extension of VTK and all of the algorithmic core is in VTK.
currently only works on lines and surfaces1 vote
title say it all, but I think the current design with xml "hints" needs some thought as well...1 vote
Already supported. Look at ADD_3DWIDGET in ParaViewPlugins.cmake
- Don't see your idea?
