Matt asked me to share some recent volume renderings that I've made, along
with the scripts to go with them. I've posted one such example here:
Beware the movie is about 260 MB.
This is a fairly small simulation but is a good example of what the volume
renderer can do. I've implemented an "embarrassingly" parallel script that
allocates one datadump/viewpoint to each processor. Here each of the 1717
frames can be partitioned and rendered in about a minute for a 1024^2 image,
meaning that on 16 processors this took about 2 hours. If you have
questions about how the script works, please let me know.
