[ REQ 5006]:
>When translating mathematica graphics >who designs are points connected by lines, to geomview, it seems that >geomview neglects to copy the plotted points leaving only the lines. Sorry to take so long to answer your question. In fact, points are duly converted into Geomview format, but the "PointSize" directive is ignored. Thus, you were probably seeing only single-pixel points, which are nearly invisible. You can simulate the effect of the Mathematica PointSize specifier by manually setting a large linewidth on the Geomview Appearance panel. (Linewidths greater than 1 were not supported in the beta version of X-Geomview but are supported in the new 1.5 full release. They have always been supported in the SGI version.) In the Mathematica->OOGL converter, only the `SurfaceGraphics', `Polygon', `Line', and `RGBColor' directives are currently supported. It silently ignores all other information. (It wouldn't be too hard to deal with more of the commands, but we just haven't had time to do so. Some people at Swarthmore have been expanding the converter to correctly interpret almost all of the Mathematica graphics directive, but their modifications are part of a larger project and may not be easily modularizable. Still, if you're interested, I could put you in touch with them.) Hope this helps, Tamara Munzner The Geometry Center ((555) 555-5555 munzner at geom.umn.edu http://www.geom.umn.edu/people/munzner.html
