  The new VMD 1.8.7 beta 3 version now allows the outline rendering
feature to be used with Tachyon renderings. VMD 1.8.7 now incorporates
the GLSL outline rendering feature as a new material property editable
in the "Materials" window as with the others. I'll be announcing the
new beta version shortly, and I encourage you to try it out and give
me feedback on how well the new built-in feature works in comparison with
the old way of doing things. You can now use the outline rendering mode
much more easily when making movies. :-)
