The main thing to know is that you can get your app working in the "normal"
VTK way using a vtkRenderWindow, and then later you can call SetParentId()
on the render window, passing a window handle, to get VTK to draw into any
window you want rather than into a pop-up window.
Personally I have created my app in C# and have a C++ DLL doing all the VTK
stuff, but this requires quite a bit to get started. MFC is pretty old
technology and difficult to get right, but if you want to stay entirely in
C++ then you either use MFC or some other framework such as Qt. It does
not matter as far as VTK is concerned, all it takes is a window handle.
