[ REQ 5573]: thanks for Geomview (and a question)
Date: Wed, 27 Sep 1995 17:23:48 -0700 From: bobl at cs.ubc.ca To: register at geom Subject: thanks for Geomview (and a question) Although I'm still a bit of a novice at it, Geomview has been really helpful in visualizing what's going on in the problem I'm examining for my doctoral thesis in computer graphics. I'm looking at problems of global illumination, and recently I've been considering a new way to represent the transport of light between two surfaces. Geomview has let me view the geometry of the situation and verify that my code is working correctly. This is much better that staring at lots of numbers. Thanks very much for providing this tool. I have come across one problem, however, which may reflect my misunderstanding of the file formats. I want certain parts of my geometric model to appear semitransparent, but even though I use alpha values of about 0.25 in some of the face descriptions of the OFF files, Geomview appears to ignore them. I can set transparency as a material property, but this then applies to all the polygons in the scene, which is not what I want. - Bob Lewis bobl at cs.ubc.ca
