About ParaView Macros

We will from now on refer to macros as a set of standard codes that can be used regardless of data sets or scenes in ParaView. ParaView’s sense of macro is not robust enough for us so that we will be referring to traditional macros in ParaView as ‘scripts’ from here on.
Scripts are used on specific sets of data whereas macros can be used on any set of data.
Macros, all of the
pvmacros module, are standard codes that can be used
regardless of data sets or scenes in ParaView. These codes complete tedious or
recurring tasks either in ParaView’s GUI or ParaView’s batch processing
environment. We will use macros to complete everyday tasks like saving
screenshots of isometric views of a data scene or tedious tasks like making
many slices of a single data set along a line.
