Thanks for all of your work on this!  A quick question about your VTK
distribution--there is an option to compile VTK to use GL2PS to allow the
export of scene's to eps, ps, pdf, etc. see:
http://davis.lbl.gov/Manuals/VTK-4.5/classvtkGL2PSExporter.html

Is your version compiled with this option.  I believe it is not the default
due to licensing issues.


Thanks,
William
