imagevis3d - desktop out of core volume rendering application.


imagevis3d [options] files...


imagevis3d is a volume rendering application designed to handle extremely large data. By bricking a dataset (splitting it into constant-sized chunks) and only requiring one chunk to be resident in main memory, ImageVis3D's memory usage remains constant across dataset sizes.

ImageVis3D uses Tuvok to render and composite the bricks. Tuvok relies heavily on GLSL to provide accelerated volume rendering. As such, a somewhat recent video card is required. In practice, this effectively means that Linux systems currently require a nvidia card with nvidia's drivers.


The command line options of imagevis3d are:
-script filename
Runs the script file given in filename.
-log [filename, -]
Logs debug information filename, or stdout (-)
-loglevel [0, 1, 2]
Changes the verbosity of the log.


imagevis3d was written by the SCI Institute, with support from the NIH NCRR and DOE VACET programs.
