Hi Weiguang,

You can do the image resizing as a preliminary step with vtkImageResize,
which does efficient band-limited sinc interpolation and can do a good job
of shrinking the image without introducing aliasing artifacts.

Hopefully someone else will answer your question about
vtkVolumeTextureMapper3D (I haven't used it in a while).
