C++ VTK application and pvserver

Hello Everyone,

is it possibile to connect an c++ vtk/qt application with pvserver in order to obtain a remote rendering?



the obvious answer would be to use ParaView itself to connect ot a pvserver. If not, the easiest way is to create a ParaView-based applications.

You may look at the examples: https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/-/tree/master/Examples/CustomApplications


Hi Francois, thanks.

I have already developed a VTK application. So, I would like to connect to a remote server for rendering minimizing changes.


You could connect both applications by importing into your app all the ParaView machinery but there will be absolutely no link between the VTK pipelines you may create and the ParaView ones. And thus, you won’t be able to delegate the rendering to the server.


Thanks for the clarification
