Re: Offscreen rendering of 3D display images

Ok.  I gave up on the capture of my DisplayImplJ3D and am now calling
getImage() on a DisplayImplJ2D.  The image capture is working, but the
image isn't "complete" when getImage() is called.  The code hasn't added
the RGB map or a couple of my IsoContour maps.

I tried calling display.waitForTasks() to allow the display time to catch
up before calling display.getImage( true ).  No Dice.

I also tried waiting for all my TRANSFORM_DONE DisplayEvents to complete
before calling getImage(), but that isn't working either.  One suggestion
given in the mailing list is to call display.disableAction() before
mucking around with the display and then calling display.enableAction().
The mailing list entry indicated that this would then cause just ONE
TRANSFORM_DONE DisplayEvent to be triggered.  That doesn't seem to be true.

Any suggestions?
