At the time this software was written, data processing on GPUs was only possible using OpenGL. Today, there are far better alternatives.
CVLView is a viewer for arbitrary floating point data that is stored in pfs files.
All of the data processing that is necessary for visualization is done on the graphics processing unit (GPU) for optimal performance. CVLView supports range selection, gamma correction, pseudo colors, 3D views, and more.
CVLView requires the Qt toolkit, version 4.2 or newer.
