Visualization software#

  • ParaView is a free visualization package. It can be used in three modes:

    • Installed on your desktop: you have to transfer your data to your desktop system

    • As an interactive process on the cluster: this option is available only for NoMachine NX users (go to the Applications menu -> HPC -> Visualisation -> Paraview).

    • In client-server mode: The interactive part of ParaView is running on your desktop, while the server part that reads the data and renders the images (no GPU required as ParaView also contains a software OpenGL renderer) and sends the rendered images to the client on the desktop. Setting up ParaView for this scenario is explained in the page on ParaView remote visualization.
