8 caltinay 1961 - Two DataCollector instances need to be created when two active scalars
9 jongui 1201 are read from the same file.
10    
11 caltinay 1961 - setScalarRange() and generateContours() must be supplied with the same range
12 jongui 1201 in order for the colors to turn out correctly when contouring is performed.
13    
14     - setPlaneToXY(), setPlaneToXZ() or setPlaneToYZ() needs to be executed
15     whenever a plane cut is performed before a plane can be rendered correctly.
16    
17     - If a surface map and legend is created, both must have the the same scalar
18     range. For instance, if the surface map's scalar range is set between 2 and
19     4, the same must apply to the scalar bar's scalar range. Otherwise, the
20     colors of the scalar bar and surface map will not be sync.
21    
22     - Movie will create a temporary file called 'make_movie' and will delete it
23     once the movie has been generated if no parameter file name was specified.
24    
25     - To modify the parameter_file (i.e. change frames/second or codec), one needs
26     to save the parameter file (by supplying a name when creating the movie
27     instance) and run it manually using the 'ppmtompeg' command.
28    
29     - Movies cannot be generated from post script (.ps) files.
30    
31 caltinay 1961 - .iv (open inventor) and .wrl (VRML) files do not support multiple
32 jongui 1201 viewports.
33    
34 caltinay 1961 - .iv files suffer from some lighting problems when generated by VTK.
35 jongui 1201
36 caltinay 1961 - On occasions, objects using cell data may be rendered incorrectly
37     even after conversion. A workaround is to use escript interpolation to
38     get the node data for visualizations.
