ParaView Save Image
A user may want to save an image of the display area instead of saving their data. The user must ensure that no other windows are covering a portion of the display area. Otherwise, the resulting image may contain a portion of the window that is covering the display area.
- The user can then select File->Save
Screenshot from the main menu. Different formats are
available for saving the image.
- PNG Image Files (*.png)
- BMP Image Files (*.bmp)
- TIFF Image Files (*.tif)
- PPM Image Files (*.ppm)
- JPEG Image Files (*.jpg)
- PDF Image Files (*.pdf)
- The user selects where the file needs to be saved, and under what file name, then clicks Save. The image file will then be saved to disk.
- When running on a distributed system, the Save View Image command can take a while, as each node must render a full resolution version of the image and the results must be composited.
- Some operating modes will take screen grabs of the ParaView window and composite them to build the screen shot. Because of this, any obstructions of the 3-D Display Window may corrupt your saved image.
