3D animation with the ROOT Coin3 plug-in

This page illustrate the simple technique that was used to create the animation. It can be done either with the "plain" TCanvas or with the more compex tool like STAR Geometry Browser as well. All data-files can be used under either platform, namely, X11, Win32, "native" Mac.
To run this example on Windows XP you need to download and install ROOT 5.14 or higher with QtRoot for Window
The distribution contains the GeomBrowser.exe file and a few data "root", "iv", and "ROOT macro" files under $ROOTSYS/etc to play with (see it living here).
In addition one can:
  1. Download and unpack the tar-ball with 4 files:

            953 2006-12-27 17:57:52 StarDetectorUnfolding.iv
           2023 2006-12-27 17:58:07 Star.Labels.3.iv

  2. Start ROOT with QtCoin plugin
  3. Create the default empty TCanvas
           root[0] TCanvas *dummy = new TCanvas("Iv");
  4. Select "View" -> "View 3D With" -> "Coin3D View"
  5. Select "File" -> "Open" -> StarDetectorUnfolding.iv
  6. Click the "eye" button the set / rescale the view properly
  7. Select "File" -> "Open" ->"Star.Labels.3.iv"
