[vtkusers] Sneaky way of producing non-linear bands in vtk file?

Hello Julian,

You might want to try using vtkColorTransferFunction instead of 
vtkLookupTable. This allows you to add points of color (in RGB or HSV 
space) and interpolate linearly between them (in RGB or HSV). The points do 
not need to be evenly spaced.
