Description

This video presents visualization projects using large datasets of scientific research from astrophysics, chemistry, geophysics and biology. It was produced for the SIGGRAPH festival.

From the text insert included with cassette: "All the simulations as well as the introduction on this tape employ our production software, the Wavefront Technologies, Inc. package and in-house software developed for data filtering and object modelling [...] Our animators work on such workstations as the Sun 3/160 and Silicon Graphics IRIS 3130 and view images on Raster Tech framebuffers. Final redering is performed on an Alliant F/X-80 and images are recorded on 3/4" videotape via an Abekas A62 digital video store."
