Re: Rendering an offscreen image

Kathy Lee,
 
This is an important issue that we've been putting off.
I will add a method to DisplayImpl for getting the screen
image into a BufferedImage, that applications can use to
create files.  I will also add a mode to DislayImplJ2D
for off screen rendering.  However, Java3D version 1.1 is
incapable of off screen rendering, although it is promised
for Java3D version 1.2.
 
I'll let the list know when these things are available.
 
Cheers,
Bill
