Perhaps a new DisplayRealType is the 'right' answer, but since the changes made this morning significantly alter the appearance, I'm worried about the users out there who were somehow depending on the 'smooth' texture. It seems to me the old 'default' (if that's what it was) should remain the same??
I'd agree with this, but under the current system, it essesntially inverts the setTextureEnable() meaning. And I found I can't just globally change this to false, because that invalidates the use of ImageRendererJ3D(). In our non-VisAD gridded data viewer, one of the biggest complaints was blocky displays for gridded data, similar to what the new VisAD code now does. Having the smooth textures really shows the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere as opposed to blocks moving along.
