  • Added new default enhancements for ABI Level 2 products.
  • Added new formulas for grids and generating true color ABI RGB imagery.
  • Added new display types for Theta Surfaces and 3D Volume Streamlines.
  • Added the ability to smooth isosurface displays.

If you're new to McIDAS-V, a collection of fifteen McIDAS-V tutorials are available on the Documentation page of the McIDAS-V Website. The "Getting Started" chapter in the McIDAS-V User's Guide will also help to guide you through using the different types of data available with McIDAS-V.

We look forward to hearing your feedback!
