Paraview Animation, Scripting and Post Processed Video Production with DaVinci Resolve

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

ParaView is an open-source, cross-platform application used to explore, analyze and visualize scientific data. These processing capabilities can be done either with Paraviews interactive gui or by using the vastly superior method of python scripting.

DaVinci Resolve is the TV, Streaming and Movie Industries leading post compositing, color grading and all-round film editor and it is FREE!

In this hands-on workshop we will look at animation methods both straight from the Paraview GUI interface but more heavily with pvPython. We will also look at the various new rendering methods and how to know which you should use for your needs. This includes the standard rendering engine as well as the OSPRay and IndeX renderers. We will quickly look at the built-in ability to create interactive VR (virtual reality) scenes for use with popular VR headsets.

We will follow this up with how to ‘best’ turn your work into a powerful video ready for presentations, YouTube, TV and the universe at large!

Skill Level: This is an intermediate level-oriented coverage of Paraview. No previous knowledge of Paraview or Python is required but will be very beneficial as we will assume you are comfortable with the base concepts. Absolutely no knowledge of DaVinci Resolve is needed to turn your work into a masterpiece quickly and easily!

Requirements: This is a hands-on tutorial. If you want to follow please already have Paraview version 5.9 installed on your laptop. Paraview can be freely downloaded from: Paraview 5.9.

Also download and install the free version of DaVinci Resolve 17 which can be freely downloaded from (scroll all the way to the bottom!)
DaVinci Resolve 17
If you only want to follow along with one section, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND following along with the Resolve portion. If you work with animations this will revolutionize your world!

We will not take time to deal with installation issues once the workshop starts.
Help services via CRDDS Consulting Hours will be made available for people needing help setting up before the tutorial by submitting a free Consultation request form at: CRDDS Consultation Hours. Please note that you desire help or have questions on either Paraview and/or Resolve.
