@astrofrog I have a question that is it ok for me to put a screenshot of one software into the Github issue? Is there any copyright problem for this? Thanks!

I think screenshots are fine and don't break copyright

Yes thanks, I am thinking add a setting of relative_step_size for the volume to change the rendering quality, but I didn’t see the difference of the performance with different setting values, do you know if whether this works or not? :)

@astrofrog I saw that you bundled vispy package into glue-vispy-viewers, and I also know through Github you could use submodule to keep track of libraries from other repositories, this is also the way of what plotly did, so maybe in the future we could make 3Dviewers and other plugins as submodules of Glue? I am not so clear of the difference of submodule plugin and bundle package

@PennyQ - submodules are fine too, but in this case I wanted to include only a sub-directory of the whole vispy repository, hence why I just copied over all the files from VisPy. I can try and explain the difference between those three concepts tomorrow.
