Software requirements

The graphical displays presented on this web site illustrate some of the kinds of problems that can be solved using SUTRA and some of the types of graphical output that can be generated using SutraSuite utilities. They consist of static images, animations, and "3D" interactive images. Software requirements for each type of graphics file are listed below:

  • Static GIF images -- Nearly all web browsers can display such images without any additional software.
  • Animated GIFs -- Nearly all web browsers can display such animations without any additional software. The animations are set to loop continuously. They may run more slowly as the images load on the first pass.
  • "3D" interactive images (VRML files) -- A VRML browser is required to view these images.
