Heey everybody,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First my excuses, I'm not a natural English speaker, so there will be some languistical mistakes in my question .

Now my question: I'm going to make a C-program to show relativistic effects. I would prefer to make a short 'movie' and then 'convert' it in the C-program so it shows relaticistic effects. As we all now special relativity causes the space to look strange: In the middle of a picture everything will be compressed together, and at the sides everything will be blown up. So the question is: How can I calculate this compression / blowing up so that I can input this in my C-program?

Anybody knows?

Thanks in advance!! :shy:
