[vtkusers] Storing actors into memory C++

Dear Chasank,

Thank you so much :), I really mean it.

I just have a few questions,

1) In terms of memory management is it better to opt for a vector or a
linked list? Because I see you are making use of vectors, and having done
some research myself, I found that vectors have faster access time than
linked lists.

2) I'm not sure if I have asked this question before, but basically I want
to group some objects/vtk actors together so that they can move in unison
whilst other actors stay where they are. Having done some research myself,
I found that I may need to incorporate a vtkAssembly. There is currently an
example on YouTube, of a similar software that I am trying to implement.
Basically, I want to group and ungroup objects on screen/memory, but I am
not sure on how to implement the data structure. This is the link to the
video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy0gTaN3BKI, I am trying to
implement a feature similar to the one shown between 3:00 - 6:05 minutes of
the video.

3) What other properties, do you feel are essential to store in regards to
a vtkActor.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could answer my queries. Once again,
thank you so much for answering my previous queries.
