VTK into Blender via paraview
Hi all,

I wish to import 200+ streamline VTKs into blender with the tube filter applied in paraview to each one. I know paraview has an inbuilt python console for automating things like this but I have no idea where to start.
The VTKs were made with simplefoam, what I want to do is systematically import each one apply the tube filter and color by velocity according to predefined values. Then export as an x3d file named similarly to the imported vtk for import into blender where I will animate the streamlines over each time.
I know some python and I'm pretty sure I could code the blender side of this but I have no idea how to go about it in paraview.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
