> Part of that problem may be fixed by using 'OFF' instead of 'POLY' > for some stuff... The MergeVertices option to WriteOOGL merges vertices thereby reducing the size considerably. See OOGL.doc for details. The current version of WriteOOGL, by the way, has a bug related to drawing edges. If your graphics object contains any EdgeForm primitives it may not work. Nils is working on correcting this. > Also I have been attempting to use the command language. I > want to be able to apply a transformation matrix to some objects. To apply a transform to an object the command is (xform id <transform>) where <transform> is a list of 16 numbers representing the 4x4 transformation matrix. The xform-set command *sets* the object's transform to the given matrix, rather than applying it. > Is there, and how does one activate a stereo viewing mode?

You can do this via the "Obscure" panel or in the command languge with the command (normalization id off) > Are texture and transparency implemented at all in this version? > Which files from the source code would contain relevent code to any of > the above questions? No. We chose not to do this since it doesn't work very well except on the highest-end IRISes. The files that implement the GL device driver are in the directory GEOMROOT/src/lib/mg/gl if you want to have a go at it. > Has the use of a "spaceball" been implemented?

The problem is that the FORMS library, which we used to do the UI, doesn't have a scolling text widget, and we haven't been energetic enough to write our own. We just tried to make the command panel wide enough for most commands. Another way to type command to geomview is to invoke it with the arguments '-c -', as in geomview -c - <files> which tells it to read command from standard input. You can then type whatever commands you want directly to the shell from which you invoked it. On another note, we're curious here about how you came to use MinneView; how did you find out about it and how long have you been using it? --Mark Mark Phillips email: mbp at geom.umn.edu The Geometry Center phone: ((555) 555-5555 1300 South Second Street fax: ((555) 555-5555 Minneapolis, MN 55454
