I’ve been using Paraview for a little while and I love it. So much that I would love to embark it in my code
I’m running very computationaly expensive simulations of 3d hydrodynamics using Fortran. I use Paraview to check some timesteps and generate pictures but when it comes to make an animation, I’m quickly stuck to the max size of my hard drive. For exemple, when I run a 10^9 nodes simulations over 40,000 timesteps, I can’t save enough timesteps (say one field for 10,000ts) to generate a good animation. So the question is simple:
Would it be possible to create a fortran/c library to directly use Paraview in a MPI-based code ? You would then have something like
if (t.eq.t_takepicture) then call MPI_PARAVIEW(comm3D,x,y,z,field,'script_picture_property.py') endif
where comm3D comes from mpi_cart_create, (x,y,z,field) would be 3d arrays of coordinates and the wanted field, and ‘script_picture_property.py’ would be the path to a python script (generated for instance with 'Paraview/Tools/Start Trace) which defines the visu properties you want.
