VAPOR's suite of rendering tools enable scientists to explore their 3D datasets and produce moving animations or still frame images from what they find. The utilities below are some of the key features used to produce compelling visualizations.

Direct Volume Rendering

  • Hardware texture accelerated volume rendering
  • Direct manipulation of floating point data
  • Histogram aided color and opacity map editing
  • Interactive construction and rendering of multiple isosurfaces
  • Pseudo coloring isosurface with a second variable
