Hi Dieter,

  Sometimes I find it easier to use the volume command to specify the exact region bounds with the "region" option

	volume #0 region 0,0,60,127,127,67

The six numbers are the i,j,k minimum grid index and i,j,k maximum grid index.  Indices start at 0.

In VolumeViewer there is the parameter 'Depth' but it is not accepted as parameter in the command line! Rater, adding one more number at the end of the command starts playing a movie of one slice after the other....
