Paraview and OpenSWR

Here are a couple of examples using OpenSWR as the backend renderer for Paraview.
These visualizations were achieved using unmodified Paraview 4.1 on a Core™ i7-4790 workstation with 32GB of memory.

"Daughton Magnetic Reconnection" IsoSurface

  • Iso-surface of the 10243 Daughton Magnetic Reconnection volume data set, generated with ParaView, and rendered using OpenSWR.
  • Generated iso-surface contains 20M and 85M triangles (depending on time slice).
