ParaView ([url removed, login to view]) is an open source scientific data visualization system. The system is written in C++, with Qt user interface, CMAKE build control and xml configuration resources. ParaView has an extensive plug-in system for writing new extensions. Plug-ins may optionally include special Qt GUI elements. We have a first version prototype of a plug-in which requires further development. The development steps for this project are: 1. Install ParaView (current SVN source). 2. Install Qt 3. Install CMAKE 4. Build ParaView with shared libraries 5. Install 3rd party format export library SDK Trial version. 6. Setup first version prototype source code (supplied under NDA). 7. Build existing plug-in from source code. Modify and develop plugin to achieve the following: 8. Move settings dialog to new place, such as File->Export Setup menu 9. Add log options (display export messages in log window) 10. Add progress bar during export, do not block UI 11. capture view position and direction transformations 12. add additional page formatting parameters (about 15, list supplied) 13. If multiple 3D view windows in ParaView, export from current selected. 14. persistant resource saving (ParaView State File) of export settings. 15. Scene hierarchy name filtering to generate representative names for actors, using custom hierarchy filter callback. 16. Export current colormap legend as legend onto exported output, next to 3D.
