General Information

Module Description

The volume rendering module enables volume rendering of scalar volumes. Several "render engines" are available, each of which has a different combination of features. The hardware accelerated volume rendering engines depend that the machine, on which they are used, has proper hardware for graphics acceleration and enough graphics memory available for the size of the data being rendered. Transfer functions are available to modify the appearance of the data.
