Hi Michael,
I can't answer question #1 maybe John can ...

I have used VMD in several presentations especially with a lcd projector
and laptop. It is the only way I present to my group and others.

My laptop is win2000 dell latitude with 800 by 600 res. The projector has
the same resolution. For small, close meetings the overall image is
grainy but good. Once you are ten feet or more away from the actual
screen the resolution isn't much of an issue. Using powerpoint vmd is as
easy to incorporate as any other application.

There is a FAQ on the raster3d site here at the University of Washington
that explains how to get it installed on a windows platform. It isn't
