DICOM File Loader is back now..

Quite some time ago, I had blogged about VTK Designer 1.0.5 supporting DICOM image loading. Since we have DFLs in VTK Designer 2 also, I dicided to write some code to support the same thing in vtkd2 as well. And here is the result.

This time around, I want to ensure that the support for volume rendering is more mature. A new VTKVolumeSystem component for VTK Designer 2 will provide volume visualization classes from VTK.

I need to refer more materials before getting anything reasonable out of this module.

Compiling and Using Phonon on Linux

Phonon is a neat framework for multimedia applications on Linux. To top that; it is written using Qt. Like Marble; it does not need KDE to work. Recently Trolltech announced Phonon backends for Linux, Windows and Mac; which means that we can now provide Audio and Video capabilities in Qt applications 🙂

I wanted to use Phonon with a Qt application so I set out to build Phonon and GStreamer backend for it on Linux. After a couple of hours of work I managed to get Phonon and hte GStreamer backend compiled on Linux. I even managed to write simple audio and video player programs :).

I thought of creating a small article about it. You can download them from here:
