I loaded a MRC file, isosurfaced it, gave it a transparency around
0.48, and generated a vrml in chimera.
I loaded the vrml into amira.
I reloaded the vrml into chimera, I turned off the fog on chimera,
moving the object around the refresh rate seems to be around 8 fps.
On amira it seems to be around 24fps.
The graphics on Chimera seems to be better during the rotation of
full rotation in chimera is flawless,
full rotation in amira results in flipping of the object (vertices in
back quantum-ly jump to the front, front vertices go to back, looks
like a z buffer error) periodically at 180 degrees, making it useless
for many camera positions.
Any comments or suggestions?
