  3. Currently, ParaView automatically re-renders the screen after any filters have been applied, which can cause large delays if datasets are large and representations are set to anything but outline. It would be nice to have an auto-redraw tickbox option with a redraw(render) button on the UI, so that the user can apply any filters and render whenever they want manually by button clicks. A similar effect can be achieved using representations, but the drop-down box can prove fiddly if it has to be changed frequently.

  6. 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.

  7. It would be great to be able to define multiple coordinates systems. They could be used to manage easily multiple body / vectors component analysis in multiple coordinate systems. (vector coordinates should adapt based and the chosen cs...)

  8. A conversion reader for Abaqus/CFD files would enable us to postprocess fluid dynamics problems in Paraview

  9. When you load a state, you have the option to change the data file used. It would be nice if when you have loaded a state, you could right click the data file in the pipeline browser to select another data file (or alternatively, change the file name property in the pipeline, or drag and drop a file into its place).

    This would save time when you have many data files in the same format to visually inspect, for example many runs of the same experiment under various different conditions.

  10. This will make easy to install paraview in any platform with a single command line:

    $conda install paraview

    See Building packages at Conda documentation.

  11. The (now rather ancient) visualization software OpenDX has the ability to show glyphs in text form. This glyphs represent the point values as a text string. The text glyph could be 2D (always oriented in the view plane) or 3D. I am aware that text values at a given position can be displayed using the labels of the selection display inspector. But this options needs a lot of user interaction and it seems not to be possible to compare the values of two different objects.

    Extending Glyphs to have a text representation would be very much apreciated.

  12. It should be possible to launch the program with a pvsm file without being prompted to select an importer for this file format (which is not even listed).

  13. Any chance we will be seeing the ability to add canned 3D scenes to a Jupyter notebook (much like the interactive plotly charts) - this would really make reports reading interesting. I think you're almost there with Paraview web!

  15. It would be nice to be able to define the spacing between ticks, instead of only have the default values.

  17. If you have points or lines in the scene and you take a screen shot at a higher resolution than the current window (say 5000x5000), many of the objects stay the same size (spheres, planes, triangulated meshes) but many objects get much smaller (points, lines). Surely this is because the points and lines are specified in arbitrary units (Point Size = 3, Line Width=2, for example). An example is here:
    http://rpi.edu/~doriad/Paraview_List/linesize.jpg

    Notice the lines in the screenshot are much thinner.

    It would be nice to have theses sizes automatically adjusted to the relative difference between the screenshot size and the…

  18. Sometimes it would be useful if I could move selected points by a vector.
    Also, it would great if I could set label values at cells and points, which could be used for boundary conditions in e.g. FEM codes. The option could be to create an array with default values and set a given value at the selected nodes.

  19. On Mac, all the GUI components have wide spacing (such as in the toolbars and the inspectors). Although this wide spacing is typical of Mac applications, ParaView has many more options than a typical application. All these GUI components are encroaching on the views and tend to make you have to scroll more through options. I thus advocate packing all the widgets tighter. Although it will look a bit less friendly, it will be more functional.
