Interactor Start() blocking execution

(Marco Musy) #1

Is there a way (in python) to start the vtkRenderWindowInteractor in a different process so that the execution flow is not blocked?
Maybe with the vtkMultiThreader class?

The Start() method must be called from the main thread, and it passes execution of the main thread to the event loop. After Start() has been called, the only way to execute code in the main thread is via event callbacks (usually mouse events, keyboard events, or timer events).
