use the software "visit" as part of the nanoHUB rendering engine
"visit" is a community supported rendering software - supported by a national lab
It enables the visualization of continuum mesh quantities as well as atomistic quantities.
For example in bandstructure lab we have trouble visualizing potentials unless we map them to rectilinear.
We should really visualize real data and nothing else.
That is pretty much true for all the OMEN-based codes that use crystal structures.
Presume this is quite a bit of effort - but we do have application drivers for this now.
