Q: How to use an arbitrary object as glyph?

Greetings vtk-users!

    I would like to use a 2-colored line as glyph source-object. But the
class vtkLineSource does not provide me with the nesseccary tools to
generate such a 2-colored line.

    Then I tried to build a line "by hand" using vtkPolyData, vtkPoints
etc., but also in this case I was at no time able to set a special color
for a certain vertex of the line. Only on the level of vtkActor I am
able to change the appearance (colors) of the rendered object. But this
is far to late within the visualization-pipeline).

Any hints, thoughts or clues?

Thanks in advance for your time and kind advice!

Best regards...
