The multiView example

multiView

A multi-view application, with constrained camera displacements.

Four viewers are created, each displaying the same scene. The camera displacements are constrained for three of the viewers to create the classical top, front, side views. The last viewer is a classical 3D viewer.

Note that the four viewers share the same OpenGL context.
