Dear Anders,

I use vrml and I think it's a very nice tool for visualisation. In your
Gate macro, use the following command lines:

/vis/open VRML2FILE
/tracking/storeTrajectory           1
/vis/scene/endOfEventAction         accumulate  20

After you run your macro, you will obtain a file: g4_00.wrl

To look at this file, you will need view3dscene. (install it with "sudo
apt-get install view3dscene").

Hope this helps,
