Takes the active 3D VTK viewer and records a 360-degree rotation of the data into a video sequence.
The 3D Rotation plug-in allows you to record a 360 degree rotation of the current focused 3D VTK viewer about the vertical screen axis.
The ‘angle step’ parameter indicates the deviation in degrees between two consecutive snapshots. Increasing the angle will increase rotation speed (up to a point where it might look like jumping more than rotating) and reduce the final movie length.
2013-03 update: As Sam Lord suggests, the VTK viewer runs a bit faster when it is detached from the main Icy window (or if you run Icy in detached mode).
2013-11 update: As of Icy 1.4, the code used for rendering and capturing the video has been upgraded, therefore there is no more ‘pause time’ parameter (the rendering now goes as fast as the computer possibly can).
