workflow to export a view to tex

Hi all,

say I have a view in which a scalar finite element field is visualized over a 2d mesh.
Currently, I save this view as a screenshot and include this screenshot in my tex document.
A drawback with with this approach is that one has to make sure that fonts,… are consistent with the .tex document.

In matlab, I would do a surface plot to visualize the data and maybe use programs like matlab2tikz to convert the plot to a .tex document.
Within tex, I would use the pgflots package directly to create a plot.

So, are there better ways for the transfer of a view from paraview to tex?
