The Asteroid Impact Volume Rendered Cinema Database is a collection of 45,696 png images, each of 1318 x 927 resolution, covering simulation time steps 0 to 475 at theta values of -90, -64, -38, -12, 13, 38, 63, 88 and phi values of -180, -150, -120, -90, -60, -30, 0, 30, 60, 90, 120, 150. (Theta and phi are spherical coordinates.) The images total approximately 11GBytes while the non-in situ workflow simulation produced a total of 86TBytes of data. The simulation is described in a SuperComputer 16 Paper and Video and Cinema itself is descriptor in a Supercomputing 14 Paper.
Use the ‘theta’ and ‘phi’ sliders to choose camera positions. Use the third slider, often ‘time’, to step through the data by that variable.
