  1. 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)

  2. 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)

  3. 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.
