Hi All,
After reading the docs and a couple of issues here (in github), I realized there are compatibility issues when installing vtk and anaconda for python 3.

The quick fix I found was to install vtk 7.1.0 like this --> --> `conda install -c clinicalgraphics vtk
*Also mentioned in this post by Eleftherios: #1248

But when I follow the vtk segment (in
ren = ren.SetBackground(1, 1, 1) fvtk.add(ren, fvtk.streamtube(sstreams2, fvtk.colors.white)) fvtk.record(ren, n_frames=1, out_path='fornix_initial.png', size=(600, 600))

I can see a window created but it disappears as soon as I created it yet the 'fornix_initial.png' get created. Any solution?

*I also tested VTK ( ) and it seems to work correctly. Not sure what to do now, should I try a different vtk installation?

I am using OSX Sierra (10.12.6) and Python 3.6.1

Hi @Drigomaniac,

fvtk.record just save a image. If you want to keep the window and play with it, use, reset_camera=False)

For selecting between interactive or not, you can look at the example

We will correct that or feel free to correct this example via a new PR.

Thanks !

Yeap, that did it. It seems that the vtk problem and the rendering of the image worked well.
Thanks for your rapid response,
