Dear All,

I use paraview to calculate the temporal statistics - mean and RMS. I have 500 time instants and of course I will read them all into paraview. However, sometimes I would like to calculate the statistics from 100th to 500th time instants. How can I choose the starting and ending time instants in this filter? Thank you very much if someone can give me hints. Thanks again.

Hi hz283,

AFAIK, ParaView is a bit limited when it comes to manipulating time. Not even ParaView 4.0.1 has got that feature, from what I can see.

They've focused on manipulating time from the "animation" point of view, not as much from the temporal data point of view.

The only manipulation that I'm aware that is 100% bulletproof is to:
  1. Export the data to VTK files, where each time instance is stored in a single VTK file.
  2. Then remove the files that relate to the temporal times you don't want to use.
  3. Then open in ParaView the resulting group of files, e.g. "data_files..vtk".
Best regards,
Bruno

Thank you. Hope Paraview can have this feature in the future, which will make life more happy.
