Code

Cone3.cxx

//
// This example demonstrates how to use multiple renderers within a
// render window. It is a variation of the Cone.cxx example. Please
// refer to that example for additional documentation.
//

// First include the required header files for the VTK classes we are using.
#include <vtkActor.h>
#include <vtkCamera.h>
#include <vtkConeSource.h>
#include <vtkNamedColors.h>
#include <vtkPolyDataMapper.h>
#include <vtkRenderWindow.h>
#include <vtkRenderWindowInteractor.h>
#include <vtkRenderer.h>


int main(int, char* [])
{
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkNamedColors> colors =
    vtkSmartPointer<vtkNamedColors>::New();

  //
  // Create an instance of vtkConeSource and set some of its
  // properties. The instance of vtkConeSource "cone" is part of a
  // visualization pipeline (it is a source process object); it produces data
  // (output type is vtkPolyData) which other filters may process.
  //
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkConeSource> cone = vtkSmartPointer<vtkConeSource>::New();
  cone->SetHeight(3.0);
  cone->SetRadius(1.0);
  cone->SetResolution(10);

  //
  // In this example we terminate the pipeline with a mapper process object.
  // (Intermediate filters such as vtkShrinkPolyData could be inserted in
  // between the source and the mapper.)  We create an instance of
  // vtkPolyDataMapper to map the polygonal data into graphics primitives. We
  // connect the output of the cone source to the input of this mapper.
  //
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkPolyDataMapper> coneMapper =
    vtkSmartPointer<vtkPolyDataMapper>::New();
  coneMapper->SetInputConnection(cone->GetOutputPort());

  //
  // Create an actor to represent the cone. The actor orchestrates rendering
  // of the mapper's graphics primitives. An actor also refers to properties
  // via a vtkProperty instance, and includes an internal transformation
  // matrix. We set this actor's mapper to be coneMapper which we created
  // above.
  //
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkActor> coneActor = vtkSmartPointer<vtkActor>::New();
  coneActor->SetMapper(coneMapper);

  //
  // Create two renderers and assign actors to them. A renderer renders into
  // a viewport within the vtkRenderWindow. It is part or all of a window on
  // the screen and it is responsible for drawing the actors it has.  We also
  // set the background color here. In this example we are adding the same
  // actor to two different renderers; it is okay to add different actors to
  // different renderers as well.
  //
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderer> ren1 = vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderer>::New();
  ren1->AddActor(coneActor);
  ren1->SetBackground(colors->GetColor3d("SlateGray").GetData());
  ren1->SetViewport(0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 1.0);

  vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderer> ren2 = vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderer>::New();
  ren2->AddActor(coneActor);
  ren2->SetBackground(colors->GetColor3d("LightSlateGray").GetData());
  ren2->SetViewport(0.5, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0);

  //
  // Finally we create the render window which will show up on the screen.
  // We put our renderer into the render window using AddRenderer. We also
  // set the size to be 300 pixels by 300.
  //
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderWindow> renWin =
    vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderWindow>::New();
  renWin->AddRenderer(ren1);
  renWin->AddRenderer(ren2);
  renWin->SetSize(600, 300);

  vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderWindowInteractor> iren =
    vtkSmartPointer<vtkRenderWindowInteractor>::New();
  iren->SetRenderWindow(renWin);

  //
  // Make one view 90 degrees from other.
  //
  ren1->ResetCamera();
  ren1->GetActiveCamera()->Azimuth(90);

  //
  // Now we loop over 60 degrees and render the cone each time.
  //
  for (int i = 0; i < 60; ++i)
  {
    // render the image
    renWin->Render();
    // rotate the active camera by one degree
    ren1->GetActiveCamera()->Azimuth(1);
    ren2->GetActiveCamera()->Azimuth(1);
  }

  iren->Start();

  return EXIT_SUCCESS;

Download and Build Cone3

Click here to download Cone3 and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball Cone3.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd Cone3/build 

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./Cone3

WINDOWS USERS

Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
