Thanks to Brian Corrie, the instructor, and the 23 UofS researchers who attended the Introduction to Visualisation Workshop last week, and who made the workshop a success.
There were a few people at the workshop who were interested in learning more and having more opportunities to play with Paraview, to learn more of its features and to explore other datasets. To help those people, and others that are interested, here are a few resources that might be of interest:
- The Paraview Tutorial is a set of exercises and data intended to familiarise readers with the program. It covers some of the same features that Brian talked about in the workshop, but does show some different features.
- Boston University’s Information Technology & Services team have prepared a web based tutorial that has a focus on vector visualisation, and includes example data.
- Try Paraview with your own data. It can manipulate a number of file types and formats. Molecules expressed in the PDB (Protein DataBase) format can be read in with the “Protein Data Base files (VisIt)” filter. Files for 3d printers (STL files) can also be viewed with Paraview.
Moving on after Paraview, your visualisations can be enriched through other programs. Here is an example of how to bring a Paraview visualisation into a ray tracing program (Blender) to do enhanced post processing effects.
