Change the animation clock precision in ParaView

July 12, 2016


Starting in ParaView 5.2, there will now be an option to set the precision (number of significant digits) displayed by the animation clock in ParaView. This option is located within ParaView’s Settings/General tab (as in the above screenshot), and can be exposed by selecting the Advanced gear button at the top right corner of the window.


By default, the animation clock displays 17 digits of precision.


By changing this setting, you can set the clock precision to a new value.

  1. Wouldn’t be 3 or 5 digits are more practical default value? I hardly can imagine a scenario where I would need the full precision. Usually I want to get the time at a glance.
