Summary0015039: vtkVrmlImporter does not parse Appearance nodes properly

The appearance node is consumed but is not actually processed in any way. Likely it needs to read the texture and material from within and update the actor accordingly.

I tested with last VTK git version and it seems like the importer DO parse and process appearance nodes. But only Material nodes are supported, textures are not.
Do you have a simple example where it fails?

By the way I just cleaned and fixed some crashes and bugs in the importer code. They will be commited soon.

Ah OK, fair enough. I obviously misread the source. However, it definitely doesn't handle textures, as you said. An example VRML2.0 file with a texture is here: [^]

I haven't provided the texture, but I could always email it on request.

Change Ica830d9d: Fix and clean VRML importer code.

Whole code has been cleaned and "modernized".
Several crashes were fixed and an exception mechanism has been
setup to avoid some crashes on file read error - but a lot of other
check should be perform to make it reliable!
Some VRML files do not print the face end marker (-1) for the last
face. This behaviour was not supported before. It is now.
Another fix is that Material properties are more inherited from
previously read nodes.
Add a parameter to specify the resolution for Cone, Sphere
and Cylinder shape sources - default value is 12.

Texture are still not supported by the way. Could you send me the texture associated with your example file?
