  1. Reload-Button

    It would be nice to have a reload-button for time-dependend datasets. So you don't have to apply all your filters again if the simulation is evolved in time.

  2. Add vector graphics output (i.e. postscript)

    Users have wanted this for at least 5 years (see http://www.paraview.org/pipermail/paraview/2004-September/000836.html), and it was never done. There is a user-made patch by Christian Becker that has been in Mantis for two years (see http://public.kitware.com/Bug/bug_view_page.php?bug_id=2887).

  4. Format Cube Axes

    Till now, it's not possible to format the Cube Axes deciding Font/Size of the text, thickness of the ticks, etc ...
    Font/Size of each axis' title is a very important feature: the size is usually quite big and the letters are super-imposed to the axis' lines.

    Adding this feature to Paraview would enhance it a lot

    Thanks

  5. State file (*.pvsm) and relative paths

    As found in http://www.cmake.org/pipermail/paraview/2007-October/006115.html,
    when saving a state file (*.pvsm), it should be possible to have relative path files (with independancy of the directoty syntax / or \ relative to unix or windows platforms)

  7. SpacePilot (3DConnexion) support

    A SpacePilot makes navigating through 3D Visualizations so much more easy than just using a mouse.
    Please include support for this hardware.

  9. Transparency/opacity in surface color map

    When rendering surfaces, you are only able to set colors in the color map. You should also be able to set the opacity for each control point as you can with volumes. (Bug 6129)

    This is supported in ParaView 3.98.0. The Color Scale Editor dialog adds an option to “Enable Opacity Function” for surfaces. When checked, users can specify the opacity function to use, similar to that specified for volumes.

  10. Add copy and paste properties (or clone filter)

    When working in large pipelines, it's common to copy some filter properties between different instances. It would be very handy if there was a copy and paste or, maybe, a clone filter.

    commit abd9d370af75477456e226855a3f84e5a407e669
    Author: Utkarsh Ayachit
    Date: Tue Dec 7 12:11:56 2010 -0500

    Added support to copy properties. Simply right click on a source or use the “Copy Properties” action from the Edit menu.
  11. Add matplotlib Qt Backend for XY plot

    It could be awesome if we could use the power of the Matplotlib Qt backend for XY plot. It could really improve and enhance the usability of the XY plot module of Paraview with awesome python scripting possibility.

  12. Transparency/opacity in background color

    It would be an enhancement to ParaView's output capabilities to allow for transparent backgrounds when saving data as, e.g., PNG screenshots.
    Right now, there's always a rectangular bounding box in the way independent of the geometrical structure.

    This is supported since ParaView 4.2. The setting can be accessed from the Settings dialog, General Tab. Search for “Transparent Background” under the advanced settings.

  13. Make it simpler to change the scale in the 3D view

    It takes more effort that is necessary to rescale the colour bar, i.e.
    * click the colour scale editor
    * untick automatically rescale
    * click rescale range
    * update range in new dialog window
    * click rescale
    * close dialog

    Three suggestions:
    * Remove the unnecessary extra dialog for the range (include in the main dialog window)
    * Colour editor dialog could be available as a context menu from the 3D view
    * Middle click and drag could select the range from the 3D view

  15. Make views dockable, including the Python shell

    It would be nice if the python command shell and other views were made dockable, with an autohide feature like Visual studio. This would be productivity boost., and would be a quick way of increasing the size of the view window.

  16. Improve the CGNS reader to reduce loading time

    Improve the CGNS reader to reduce loading time of large datasets. This would be useful for post-processing large datasets in all applications such as CFD where the CGNS format is widely used.

    With a medium size 1.4 Gb CGNS dataset, Tecplot loading time is about 15 times less than the loading time of the VisIt CGNS reader in PV 4.0.1.

  17. improve usability of LOD actors

    LOD actor goes back to full representation on mouse release. In ICEM_CFD it waits 2sec (or so so) so I can continue transformations in LOD mode without annoying delays. It is very smart of them and such feature should be added to VTK/PV.

    This has now been fixed in git-master. There’s a 2 sec delay. It will make it into 3.10 release.

    commit 8be56b840924502ca8a93328bb5986e9bfd43da6
    Author: Utkarsh Ayachit
    Date: Sun Jun 20 16:38:58 2010 -0400

    Added support to persist LOD mode when interactive. Fixed BUG #10232. The interactor now switched back to full-res after 2 secs of timeout.
  18. Add the ability to threshold, contour or clip by vectors (magnitude or component)

    It would be really nice to add the ability to threshold, contour or clip by scalar using variables other than scalars. Magnitude, and one of the components of a vector come to mind.

    There;s also an option named “Auto Convert Properties” in the Settings dialog that can be turned on to “automatically” extract components or compute magnitude for field arrays.
