Re: Aspect ratio - also the "new" look of some display and how to restore the old look

Hi Walid,

Perhaps you have an old copy of VisAD because setAspect is working.
Test57.java and Test58.java in visad/examples demonstrate how to
use it, for Java3D and Java2D.  Please let me know if you continue
to have problems.

By the way, some users have commented that their images now look
different.  This is caused by VisAD's new capability to texture map
onto curved surfaces.  If you do not like this look, you can disable
it by:

  GraphicsModeControl mode = display.getGraphicsModeControl();
  mode.setCurvedSize(-1);

or even:

  mode.setTextureEnable(false);

which will disable texture mapping even on flat rectangles.

Cheers,
Bill
