Visualizing Astrophysical N-body Systems, John Dubinski

  1. May 28, 2008 #1
    A new paper came out on Thursday by John Dubinski, co-creator of the Gravitas DVD. It's part technical, and all art. I absolutely love the work this guy does. Blows my socks off.

    P.S. For anyone interested in more information regarding basic computer visualization, the techniques discussed by Dubinski in relation to camera setup and CIE<->RGB conversion are also explained in the wonderful book:

    the abstract has a URL with extraordinarily beautiful stuff----I guess that's part of the point you were making---even just looking at the stills in the gallery, without watching the animations or downloading the free DVD (which I'm not sure I could manage.)

    thanks for the link!

    The torrent link timed out for me. Does it work for anyone else?
