  1. Add python shell in paraview configure

    Due to the screen DPI now getting smaller and smaller, the python shell embedded in paraview lack of appropriate font adjustment, hoping to join customizable features about python shell appearance.

      • Create a standalone Applikation from a pipeline and it's views

        It would be nice to do prototyping in paraview and when everything seems fine create a standallone application. The application should be able to set the input of the pipeline by browsing for a file so that the pipeline can be applied to any file.
        The application files should be packed into a single .exe or so. The main window's name should be configurable as well as the about box. The application would be restricted to the pipeline it was created from, there would be neither tools for pipeline manipulation nor for view adaptation which should make the application more…

        • Bring back custom filter exposed names

          I have noticed that in more recent versions of ParaView (versions > 3.8.1) the exposed names in custom filters do not display in the properties tab of the object inspector. This makes it very difficult to deal with complex custom filters (particulatly those which have multiple calculator expression fields exposed).

          I am teaching a university unit in scientific data vis, and I woould like them to create some complex custom filters and document them, for now I will simple get them to use ParaView 3.8.1, but it would be nice to teach the latest version next semester.

          • Add Shapefile support

            Support ESRI's shapefile, which is widely used for geospatial data. This is useful for a lot of CFD problems, which sometimes need to be visualized in a geographic environment.

            • Axes Grid Scaling

              The scale of the present Axes Grid is same for the all axes. So when I set Scale values on the Transforming property or Transform Filter, the values of grids become meaningless.

                  • Right now quantities are associated to nodes or elements, but in electromagnetics some quantities are naturally associated to faces (fluxes)

                    Right now quantities are associated to nodes or elements, but in electromagnetics some quantities are naturally associated to faces (fluxes) or edges (magnetomotive forces) and special finite elements (nedelec / raviart-thomas) can be used to interpolate such quantities. Is support for such entities planned? If not how difficult would it be to implement it?

                      • apply median filter to not onl;y the VTI data but other data format (e.g. foam, tecplot)

                        I am trying to use the median filter to filter my tecplot data to remove the noise. However, I realise the filter only works with the VTI image data instead of other types of data. Hence, I am trying to use Python median_filter in the programmable filter to do the filtering.

                        • Import Azore CFD solver data

                          The Azore CFD package has an export to VTK for ParaView use, but ParaView does not have an import directly from Azore. Would be useful to connect the two more completely.

                          • Create a reader for the Fieldview format (.fvuns).

                            The .fvuns format is commonly used for creating animations in FLUENT. The reason is that you can export selected planes/surfaces (even with dynamic mesh), meaning that you will have lower file than when exporting the entire data set. For long transient animations, this format is therefor highly useful.

                              • Create the ability to align sources (besides cone) along different axes

                                It seems that most sources (cylinder etc.) only align along the Y axis. The ability to align then along a different axis would be very helpful.

                                  The default cylinder aligns along y-axis. It would be much helpful, if the users can specify the orientation vector of the cylinder directly inside the paraview.

                                    • In the Pipeline Browser, use the the icons of the respective filters (if existent)

                                      currently, in the pipeline browser, all the icons are just green boxes. For the filters that are used frequently (contours / slices / clips etc.), there are nice icons available. why not use them in the Pipeline browser as well?

                                      • check parallel execution under Win 7

                                        Parallel execution seems not to be working under Windows 7 64 bit

                                        Only one core used even if "enable multicore for data processing" is ticked

                                        Thanks

                                        • Add opacity shortcut or button

                                          It could work in +/- 1/4 steps or cycle though 1/3, 2/3 and 1 opacity value.
