Hi Thomas,

theoretically, it is quite simple. You have an MDI application
where you store the data in the CDocument. In the CView you set
the renderer, the actors and all the stuff.

Take a look at the MDI-VTK samples which are shipped with the
VTK code. I just tried it. I opened one file and made three
new windows from it. I could move the object around independly
for all four windows.

It should work similiar with a splitter.
