You just need to switch to the vtkVolumeProMapper from the
vtkVolumeRayCastMapper. If you built tcl wrapping I can send you a short volProt

Hi VolumePro board users !
I got VTK 4.0 now compiled (with volumePro 1000 support).
The trick was that I inserted a "#inlcude" line in
./Rendering/vtkVolumeProMapper.h  :
#include <vli3/include/vli.h>
Which as I thing resolved a "namespace' issue that got introduced with a
recent change
 in the VolumePro source.

BUT: now, how do I get e.g. the "volProt" sample program to use my board ?
Is there environment variable to be set ?  Or does it maybe not work because
 perspective projection  while the board only supports orthogonal !?
