compiling ParaView v4.2.0-RC1-75-gf64ee7a with -DModule_vtkIOXdmf3:BOOL=ON

Hello,

I would like to test out the xdmf3 writer in ParaView 4.2 RC to see if the file size is still increase 10 fold when saving pvd file to xmf format.

However, when I configure ParaView v4.2.0-RC1-75-gf64ee7a with -DModule_vtkIOXdmf3:BOOL=ON

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/simonsm/tools/paraview/paraview-v4.2.0-RC1-75-gf64ee7a_mesa -DPARAVIEW_ENABLE_PYTHON:BOOL=ON -DPARAVIEW_USE_MPI:BOOL=ON -DPARAVIEW_ENABLE_WEB:BOOL=OFF -DModule_vtkIOXdmf3:BOOL=ON ../ParaView-v4.2.0-RC1-75-gf64ee7a

I got whole bunch of boost related cmake error with cmake version 3.0.0 and cmake version 2.8.12.2. Some of the error messages are included at the end of this email.

I am able to compile RC1-22-g9ca4e44 version ok but without Module_vtkIOXdmf3 set to ON. Is there anything on the boost side that I am not setting it right? I am compiling on RHEL 6.5 with boost-devel-1.41.0-18.el6.x86_64 installed.

thanks
-simon

howto move an object depending on actual time

hello,

i would like to create an animation of moving objects using the 
animation view. unfortunately the positions of the objects stored within 
the data file are stationary, so i have to manually define the movement 
anyhow.

is there a simple method to archive this using the animation inspector? 
(i am using paraview 4.1.0)

alternatively i found a method to use the python calculator to translate 
the object. if i could access the actual time it would be possible to 
define the trajectory of the moving particle. is this possible?

thanks
FloB

Parametric functions.

A while back there was a request for something different from the usual sphere source. 

So I have created an xml file to access the parametric surface functions in ParaView along with a reverse sense programmable filter. It was an interesting exercise that revealed some deficiencies in the parametric function implementations that have been fixed in the VTK master.

I am happy to contribute this if people feel it will be useful.

Just let me know how.


Regards
    Andrew

slightly puzzled by paraview extract block behavior (UNCLASSIFIED)

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: FOUO

had someone ask me for help with a problem they were having with paraview v4.1.0 in server/client mode.

 

steps are: i) read in an ensight case file, ii) use Extract Block filter to yank out a particular block,  iii) color extracted block with various variables.

simple enough.

 

let me say up front that the data is pretty small (order of 100k points, 450k cells).

we ran this using a varying number of procs in a single node.

 

when the number of procs got to be 14 or greater (16 cores in the server nodes) the extract block step lost the data variables.

the geometry was correct still but none of the data variables survived the operation.

 

I’ll stipulate that it makes little sense to use more than one proc for data this small.

 

but why does the extract block not still work?

 

slightly puzzled.

Open File Dialog Box Hang on OSX

Hello,
   I wanted to post a solution to a problem that I had with ParaView 4.1.0 on Mac OSX 10.9.4.   The problem was a hang (not a crash) when selecting the “Open” file menu item. The dialog box eventually appeared after a spinning beachball went away, but then complained that it could not find a certain AppleShare volume that was no longer in use on our local network. The dialog box also listed items that were taken from the Finder Sidebar, but were very out of date. 

  This last point made me realize what was going on. Paraview was (perhaps indirectly) reading stale information out of ~/Library/Preferences/org.apple.sidebarlists.plist . Upon inspection, I found the stale info in this file.  It seems that back in 2011 the finder was updated, and no longer uses some of this information, but Paraview still does. 

  I removed this file and also set my finder sidebar preferences to not display shared volumes, or anything that I didn’t strictly need. You may find a restart is necessary in order for the change to take effect, but I’ve fixed the problem on three machines.  I’m not sure how widespread this problem is, or if it’s even specifically a Paraview issue, but I thought I’d post the information in case it’s helpful to someone.

Data structure for 'table to structured grid' filter

Dear all,

I met a problem when I  converted table data to structured grid. The data is arranged as attached test.csv file. I set up Whole extent as ((0,2), (0,2), (0,1)). But the grid system does not look right.  See below. I think the problem is the data ordering problem that are usually talked about in previous threads. Can anyone give a example of how to use this filter or give me some information on how to do it correctly. Thanks for all your considering.

Re: How to simply "Reload" a data file

Hi,

I wanted to try the "Reload" button which presumably can be created by one of the methods outlined below. But
I am maybe too naive or am missing something: I have a Windoze binary distribution of ParaView 4.0.1. I did
not find the file indicated by Cory, and copying the xml code given by Sébastien into a file and loading
that as plugin had no effect visible to me.

What am I missing here?

Thank you,

Matthias

fft of selection over time filter

I am trying to figure out the FFT of selection over time filter.  My user is trying to use it on a velocity point vector field (in 2d, no less).  So, a few questions:
  • This filter doesn’t work on point data, but only cell data.  Shouldn’t it work on point data?
  • This filter doesn’t create magnitudes of vectors.  Shouldn’t it if needed?
  • Since an FFT spans some array of data, shouldn’t this span be changeable?  For instance, 16 or 32 or 128?
  • Does this filter even work correctly?  Has anyone ever used it?
  • Can anyone create a simple example using this filter?
 
Thanks,
 
 
Alan

Re: vts file format

I don't think the file you attached is correct. Attached is an example of how a VTI file should look.

Are you sure it's a "structured grid" or is an "image data"? Refer to this for difference between the two: http://www.paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView/Users_Guide/VTK_Data_Model 

Programmable filer may be the easiest way to go. Attached is an extract from the ParaView User's Guide that's currently being updated. A combination of recipes shown in Sections 14.2.1 and 14.2.4 is what should help.

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to convert a big csv file to a simple structured grid (100x100x136). I imported it to Pra-view, but I could not convert it to grid using Filters-> "Table to Structured Grid". another attempt was creating a vts/vtk file from my csv file, but the structure of file is ambiguous. I couldn't find any example. 
In VTK pdf file regarding file formats, there is just an example for structured point (page.18), I copied and pasted this example in Notepad++ and saved with .vts and vtk extension, but I could not open in in Paraview (4.2.0 RC1 64-bit).

Do you have any example file or comment on the file structure?

Thanks

vts file format

how to know the type of a view?

Dear ParaView experts...

Is there any way to knwo what the type of a view is
within a python macro (e.g. from the return value of
GetRenderView())?
I'd like to know whether an exisiting view is, say, a
'MultiSlice' or not (and create one if none exists).

Thanks in advance.
