Dear paraview community,
we are currently developping at kitware europe a new paraview feature which adds an interface to edit OSPRay materials within the paraview GUI. It will:
- allows you to load a existing material library from a json file (such as https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/materials)
- add or delete material from that library
- brows through that library and make changes to the various properties of each material
- save the edited library
- see the current loaded material into a shader ball like environmment accessible within the widget which would give immediate feedback on current material changes
The current design, although still a prototype looks like this
You can see the material editor on the right hand side of the paraview window. The main rendering window displays a simple ball with a HDR environment. This rendering will in the end move inside the material editor, and would be independent from the rendering window.
Any thoughts / concerns?
