Wrong aspect ratio with onscreen pvpython

Hello,

I use paraview.simple and pvpython to generate bunch of pictures using a preset stored in a pvsm file. However I realised that the resolution of the pictures was not what I choose even after using

renderView1.ViewSize = [1080, 1080]

I expect to obtain a square picture/movie but I obtain a 1080x1016 pixels picture, the pictures is then wider than what I see using paraview.
This is the one using paraview and saving a screenshot


And that what’s pvpython windows that pops shows (same as pictures, the sides are more visible)

If I use the offscreen rendering I successfully get what I want, a 1080x1080 picture

I suspect the window decoration mess up things but I didn’t test much this assumption.

Which command do you use to save the screenshot ?

I am saving the images as jpeg

SaveAnimation(xxx.jpeg, renderView1, ImageResolution=[1080, 1080],Quality=100)

The same applies to the SaveScreenshot function which gives the same (wrong) aspect ratio

SaveScreenshot(‘xxx.png’, renderView1, ImageResolution=[1080, 1080],
FontScaling=‘Scale fonts proportionally’,
OverrideColorPalette=’’,
StereoMode=‘No change’,
TransparentBackground=0,
CompressionLevel=‘5’)

What is your window manager ?

I use native ubuntu 20.04
So it’s GNOME 3.36.2 at the moment.

I should probably mention that my screen is full hd hence 1080 pixels is the max displayable height. So I wonder if this is just a restriction of the onscreen rendering about the resolution of the display.

However Paraview produces proper images even for higher resolution.
