  2. Oculus Rift support in ParaView

    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.

  3. Add the possibility of reloading result files while mantaining the setup of a saved state

    Adding the possibility of reloading result files while mantaining the setup of a saved state, in order not to have to specify filters, windows and all this stuff, would be a nice function that will save post-procesing time.

    By the way, ParaView is an extraordinary post-processor! thank's for putting it in open-source regime.

  4. Incorporate interactive deformation tools to manipulate meshs and contours

    This could be very useful for those who want to interactively deform and visualize resulting meshes, similar to what is professionally available in many CAD packages. Simply click on a surface and extrude, or click on a mesh vertex and reposition

  5. Enhancements for Resample With Dataset filter

    It often happens on CFD analysis that you want to resample large data file (like a complicated.foam case) on .stl or other kind of geometry files. But when you do this with Resample filter, you loose all the previous present celldata or pointdata (for example the STLSolidLabeling on an stl file useful do subdivide them). The Resample With Dataset filter could be improved by adding a (flag) option like "Append Already Existing Source Data", thus not missing already present dataset on Source vtkDataSet

  7. obj (with texture) can be used...

    I would like to know if it's possible to used obj format with the textured file, in order to create "fly in" or "fly through" animation of the model. Actually obj file could be used but the textured file is not used

  9. 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:

  10. Three Arrows with Glyph Plot

    Hello,

    When I create a vector plot, the plot returns with three arrows representing each point instead of one arrow. How can I change from three arrows to one arrow?

  12. Add PYTHONPATH for Tools/Python shell in Edit/Settings

    Paraview python shell is difficult to use with Anaconda distributions in Linux. The shell don't see the PYTHONPATH to Anaconda or other secondary python distributions not in /usr/lib... That makes difficult to use external python modules

    $ export PYTHONPATH = /mypath works with pvpython but not in the python shell in Tools/Python shell

  13. Add axis default color to preferences->colors

    Right now, the axis colors default to white and there is no way to change this behavior. This means, that if your background color is white by default, you don't see the axes when you enable them till you manually change their color to black.

    Of course you can do this every time, but it would be better if there was a default axis color in the preferences->colors menu.

    P.S.: white background color rocks, and should be paraviews default because: screenshots (pngs) taken with white background color look good on things that also have a white background color like _papers_,…

  19. support reading and writing point data in a simple binary XYZ or XYZ-Scalar format.

    Paraview already supports many different file formats, but from what I can tell, these all relate to other 3rd party programs. It would be very useful if paraview could read and write to files with a simple binary format, such as a contiguous block of doubles or floats <x1><y1><z1><scalar1><x2><y2>...
    This would make integration in to custom apps much easier.
