## 9 Mathematica Graphics in Geomview or RenderMan

Geomview comes with some Mathematica packages that let you use use
Geomview to display Mathematica graphics. Mathematica is a commercial
mathematical software system available from Wolfram Research, Inc.

There are two ways to do this.

- Use Mathematica to write a graphics object to a file in OOGL format
or in RIB format.
- Use Geomview as the default display for all 3D graphics output in
Mathematica.

You can also use these packages to save Mathematica graphics in
RenderMan (RIB) format.
Since the format of Mathematica graphics objects is different from the
OOGL formats, both of these methods involve translating Mathematica
graphics to OOGL format. Geomview is distributed with a Mathematica
package which does this translation. Before doing either of the
above you must install this package.
