Summary: Rendering plugin for VTK

Initial Comment:
VTK ( is a powerful cross-platform open source scientific visualisation toolkit that provides some useful features, such as the ability to display coloured isosurfaces, contour plots, and also complex visualisations, such as vector fields using streamlines,hedgehog plots etc.

A VTK plugin for Avogadro would significantly extend the visualisation capabilities of Avogadro far quicker than if the C++/Gl code had to be written directly as part of the Avogadro project.
