Prepare a pipeline with multiple filters, then apply
When dealing with large datasets, it would be nice to be able to prepare the pipeline with multiple filters (calculators, isocontours, plane) and then do the postprocessing and rendering, instead of having to create a filter, apply, create another filter.

There is currently different way to do that.
1. Create your pipeline with a very small file, so computation will no take times, then save the state. Reload the sate but select another file for the reader.
2. Write a python script that create the filters, and execute it. You can save it as a macro.
3. Create a compound filter that contains all the filters in a single one.
This idea overlaps greatly with this one: http://paraview.uservoice.com/forums/11350-general/suggestions/339087-add-an-auto-redraw-option-
Perhaps they could be combined?
