The Silicon Graphics Developer Program for Europe, Middle East & Africa
is proud to announce two additions to the latest development tools:
	- VRML Iso-Surface Extension
	- IFL Formats for Macromolecular Structures

Please see the descriptions below.

All software distribution and mailing list information can be obtained
from our site:



The Iso-Surface extension allows the visualization of real-time
iso-surfaces using VRML. An infinite number of iso-surfaces can be
visualized for a given volume, using a constant file size.

In addition, the extension allows the client to interactively change the
threshold, generating different iso-surfaces on the fly.

The Iso-Surface extension is installed via a dynamically shared object
on the client viewing the VRML world.

The Macromolecular Image Format Library (MMIFL) facilitates the
manipulation and visualization of biological images, such as acquired
from X-ray crystallography, neutron diffraction and various other forms
of microscopy.

The following specialized formats, describing molecular and crystal
structures, have been implemented using the SGI Image Format Library
