Hello Benno,

  Sorry for the long delay in responding to your letter. First off, you
might want to pick up a more recent version of Geomview for NextStep.
The main reason you should do this is that we found the Intel version
of Geomview was broken due to a bug in the compiler. This might have
caused the bug you experienced with off files.

  To use the animate module, all you need to do is click on the "Load"
button. This will give you a browser from which you can select all the
object files you want to load. Once you have outlined all the files
by dragging across them with the mouse, click on "Ok" or press return.
The objects should then appear one by one in Geomview and their names
will also appear as a list in the animate main window. You can either
loop through the objects by clicking on "Loop" or you can single step
through the objects either forward or backward using the appropriate
"Step" button. You can also click on any name in the list to go to that

Hope this helps,
