Hello Lisa.

I use vtk 2.4 .

First of vtkRenderer.cxx in My HardDisk

  Program:   Visualization Toolkit
  Module:    $RCSfile: vtkRenderer.cxx,v $
  Language:  C++
  Date:      $Date: 1999/06/23 18:16:47 $
  Version:   $Revision: 1.114 $

There is not method [::ResetCameraClippingRange] in vtkRenderer.cxx.

I maybe think the method is vtk 3.0?
I don't get vtk 3.0 .
I can't find vtk 3.0 in kitware web page .

   ren->GetActiveCamera()->SetClippingRange( value, value);
There is This method .
Can I use SetClippingRange alternative ResetCameraClippingRagene?

I have issue .
I think that you see it on (my Windows Screen Shot)'s face.
I provide Screen Shot web Page on weekend.

Probably, I mistake a lot of English.
Excuse me.
