IMJOIN joins sets of N-dimensional images together along a specified axis. IM3DTRAN performs 3d image transposes; if appropriate [*,-*,*] type image sections are given as input, it also accomplishes rotates. Tasks such as these may later be integrated into a standard IRAF package.
PVOL projects through volume images, casting rays onto a set of output 2d images distributed along a great circle around the volume image. When the output images are displayed or recorded onto video and played back, the volume image appears to rotate. Various translucency and opacity algorithms are employed.
I2SUN is a temporary task for converting IRAF images into Sun rasterfiles, primarily to take advantage of a Sun-specific MOVIE utility for viewing digital movies on a workstation screen; it will no longer be necessary when the IRAF image display servers can display movies.
