Greetings Ahmed,

ParaView is able to open EnSight cases, although not all formats.

If that doesn't work, then:
  1. Go to Star-CD and check which file export options it has.
  2. Then start ParaView, go to the menu "File -> Open" and in the drop-down menu below where it says "Files of type", click on the "Support files" drop-down menu and compare with the list you got from Star-CD :)
