CLI or script based paraview execution

Hi all,

I have been using ParaView lightly for a few years.

I want to make a process more automated.

Basically I run a script in c++ and get two .pvd files that I use with a .psvm file. I have multiple files and I want to basically skip the paraview analysis and just save the data as an animation.

I would like to do this automatically or from bash/python or some other CLI type thing.

Is this possible ?

Hi @fieldofnodes

Yes, use pvpython for that.

Do not hesitate if you have follow up question, you will probably want to use OpenData and SaveAnimation.
