If you want to use Paraview to visualize data created by your application, you will have to generate the data in a format that Paraview understands. Paraview is based on the VTK Toolkit, so it supports all the standard VTK file formats.
The file formats are very comprehensive, but also can be rather complex. Some tools have been created to ease the generation of data in proper VTK format. If you are aware of such a tool, please list it below:
- A Python class for generating VTK data in the .vtu format
- A python script to convert vti ImageData files to raw binary data Note: Iif this script doesn't work for you, leave a message on my talk page, as well as a link to a (small) dataset and I will fix it. Alternatively, fix it then send me a patch. PvPerson 07:31, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
