paraview.simple.TemporalShiftScale(*input, **params)
The Temporal

Shift Scale filter linearly transforms the time values of a pipeline object by applying a shift and then scale. Given a data at time t on the input, it will be transformed to time t*Shift + Scale on the output. Inversely, if this filter has a request for time t, it will request time (t-Shift)/Scale on its input.

Data Descriptors


The input to the Temporal Shift Scale filter.


If Periodic time is enabled, this controls how many time periods time is reported for. A filter cannot output an infinite number of time steps and therefore a finite number of periods is generated when reporting time.


If Periodic is true, requests for time will be wrapped around so that the source appears to be a periodic time source. If data exists for times {0,N-1}, setting periodic to true will cause time 0 to be produced when time N, 2N, 2N etc is requested. This effectively gives the source the ability to generate time data indefinitely in a loop. When combined with Shift/Scale, the time becomes periodic in the shifted and scaled time frame of reference. Note: Since the input time may not start at zero, the wrapping of time from the end of one period to the start of the next, will subtract the initial time - a source with T{5..6} repeated periodically will have output time {5..6..7..8} etc.


If Periodic time is enabled, this flag determines if the last time step is the same as the first. If PeriodicEndCorrection is true, then it is assumed that the input data goes from 0-1 (or whatever scaled/shifted actual time) and time 1 is the same as time 0 so that steps will be 0,1,2,3…N,1,2,3…N,1,2,3 where step N is the same as 0 and step 0 is not repeated. When this flag is false the data is assumed to be literal and output is of the form 0,1,2,3…N,0,1,2,3… By default this flag is ON


The amount of time the input is shifted.


Apply a translation to the data before scaling. To convert T{5,100} to T{0,1} use Preshift=-5, Scale=1/95, PostShift=0 To convert T{5,105} to T{5,10} use Preshift=-5, Scale=5/100, PostShift=5


The factor by which the input time is scaled.

This method returns a DataInformation wrapper around a vtkPVDataInformation


Returns the associated cell data information.


Returns the associated point data information.

UpdatePipeline(self, time=None)

This method updates the server-side VTK pipeline and the associated data information. Make sure to update a source to validate the output meta-data.


This method updates the meta-data of the server-side VTK pipeline and the associated information properties

__getitem__(self, idx)

Given a slice, int or string, returns the corresponding output port

Methods inherited from Proxy

GetProperty(self, name)

Given a property name, returns the property object.

GetPropertyValue(self, name)

Returns a scalar for properties with 1 elements, the property itself for vectors.

InitializeFromProxy(self, aProxy, update=True)

Constructor. Assigns proxy to self.SMProxy, updates the server object as well as register the proxy in _pyproxies dictionary.


Returns a list of all property names on this proxy.

SetPropertyWithName(self, pname, arg)

Generic method for setting the value of a property.


Destructor. Cleans up all observers as well as remove the proxy from the _pyproxies dictionary

Returns true if the underlying SMProxies are the same.

__getattr__(self, name)

With the exception of a few overloaded methods, returns the SMProxy method


Return hash(self).

__init__(self, **args)

Default constructor. It can be used to initialize properties by passing keyword arguments where the key is the name of the property. In addition registrationGroup and registrationName (optional) can be specified (as keyword arguments) to automatically register the proxy with the proxy manager.


Creates an iterator for the properties.

__ne__(self, other)

Returns false if the underlying SMProxies are the same.

__setattr__(self, name, value)

Implement setattr(self, name, value).

add_attribute(self, name, value)
