Re: Volume Rendering

Hi Vijay,

Check out Section 4.11 of Ugo Taddei's excellent VisAD
tutorial, at:

  
http://www.geogr.uni-jena.de/~p6taug/visad/tutorial/s4/Section4.html#section4_11

To use VisAD, you do not construct your own ImageComponent3D
or other Java3D objects. Rather, you put your data into VisAD
classes as described in Ugo's tutorial.

Good luck,
Bill
