Hoi Maurice,

I don't know if it'll solve your problem, but I'd like to correct a few
issues in your code.

Ouch... this should be:
unless I am _totally_ misunderstanding your context.

This will evaluate create3DFrom5D when you call SetExecuteMethod, and
you don't want to do that.  You have to make sure that create3DFrom5D
has a suitable prototype (to be a SetExecuteMethod callback) and rather
Note the difference.  One can also make use of a lambda construct of

No idea, you didn't say where matrix3D is defined.
