Re: obj graphics fly-thru help

And yes, I have looked at the IDL demo program flythru.pro.  This
interface isn't close to what I would call a flythru.  Try it and you'll
see what I mean.

I am starting to think that the problem is more complex than I first

Does anybody know if this is even possible in IDL?
