Hello to all,
my teacher asked me to find a manner to produce a series of images and to automate this procedure because we have to make different test for the colour etc. After a rapid search i (maybe) understand that this could be made by the use of a python script.
I initially built Paraview with OpenFOAM but then i noticed this is an incomplete version because it hadn't let to save .pdf image. So i installed a "stand alone" version and now i wan to to produce an image through a python script.

I test this one find in the web

from paraview.simple import *
but, unfortunatley, when i run this script an errorr occurs and it does not load the module.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 2, in <module>
    from paraview.simple import *
ImportError: No module named 'paraview'

i use python3
What's i'm doing wrong?

Thanks for help
