New in ParaView: Rotating about a coordinate axis
As we get ever closer to the next release of ParaView, I realized that I had not written one of these "New in ParaView" posts in a while. So here it is: based on a uservoice request, ParaView (version v4.3.1-916-gae6ff98 or greater) now supports interactively rotating in a 3D Render View while limiting the rotation to one of the 3 coordinate axes. When rotating (typically using the left-button on your mouse), simply press the X, Y or Z keys to restrict the rotation to about the corresonding axis. The following video demonstrates just that.
