An Introduction to Batch Visualization
This 1 hour long webinar will talk about batch visualization on Compute Canada clusters, in which rendering can be done in the background with either an interactive script or a scheduled job, without any GUI interaction. The basics of writing scripts using ParaView's Python, porting them to an HPC cluster, and submitting them to the job scheduler will also be covered. Depending on time, in-situ visualization using Catalyst and interactive viewing of pre-rendered images in ParaView Cinema may also be discussed briefly.
This webinar is for any current WestGrid / Compute Canada user. No prior vizualization experience required! We will be using WestGrid's Parallel cluster for the demonstrations.
