`tcsplot.Rd`

Produces an interactive 3D plot of a tetrahedral colorspace using OpenGL capabilities.

Plots points in a tetrahedral color space

Produces a 3D convex hull in tetrahedral color space

`tcsplot`

creates a 3D plot using functions of the package `rgl`

,
based on openGL capabilities. Plot is interactive and can be manipulated with the mouse
(left button: rotate along 'z' axis; right button: rotate along 'x' axis;
third button: zoom). `tcsvol`

creates polygon based on points, determining the volume
occupied by them in the colorspace. `tcspoints`

adds points to the plot. Points are
currently plotted only as spheres to maintain export capabilities.

`tcspoints`

creates 3D points in a tetrahedral color space plot produced by `tcsplot`

using functions of the package `rgl`

, based on openGL capabilities.

`tcsvol`

creates a 3D convex hull within a `tcsplot`

object.
