Tiff texturing problem
There is an issue with texturing with tiff files like the two in the attachment. My stripped down case (with ParaView 5.7 "release version") is:
- Generate a sphere with the Sphere source
- Apply Texture to plane
- Load one of the two texture files - one with tiff extension and one with only tif
TIFF: First of all, the load dialog offers the tiff file only, not the tif. But if you try to apply it, Paraview will simply crash.
TIF: If you force using the other file (that is not shown in the dialog because "tif" is not among the supported extensions), by manually typing that file name into the file dialog, the texture is applied just fine.
This is how things are going on a Windows 10 machine. The same thing on a machine with Ubuntu Linux 18.04 does not crash, but instead generates an error message: "Unknown texture file extension" - and of course no texture is shown.
Basically these are two issues:
- the crash
- the fact that only tiff can be loaded from the file dialog, but only tif files can be used as textures
