Old Scientific Visualization Software I've written.
Here we have some old 3D graphics apps I wrote. I'm sure that much of
the code in these would be cringe-worthy to me now, but for the sake
of completeness I've included much of it anyway.
All of these programs were written for Linux.
Lascivious (Lisp Visualization System)
Lascivious is an ongoing experiment in writing visualization
software in Common Lisp. I undertook the project both to learn lisp
and to see how hard it was to write speed and memory efficient lisp
code. Currently I have a working direct volume renderer without a
whole lot of bells and whistles. Its capable of producing nice
looking images, but it doesn't use any fancy optimizations; it has
early ray termination and thats about it. It has been an interesting
experiment in low-level lisp optimization, however.
So far I've only tested it in CMUCL, since CMUCL has a fast compiler.
It would be pointless to run Lascivious in an interpreter.

Rotmovie is a scientific visualization tool that I helped develop for the
North Carolina State University Condensed Matter Theory Group. I was responsible
for the graphical user interface and the graphics and visualization functions. To
achieve this, I used Gtk+ to help build the GUI and I used
Vtk(Visualization Toolkit) as the
foundation for the 3d graphics and visualization functions.
Screenshots of my desktop while running Rotmovie: basic operation
- Allows realtime 3d interaction with molecular models
- Display of molecules is highly configurable through the graphical user interface
- Configurable display of isosurfaces extracted from electron density datasets
- VCR controls to play movies of molecules as they undergo chemical reactions
- Saves output files of various image and data formats(BMP, PPM, Postscript, Coordinate files)

GVS or the "Gtk Visualization System" is a Gtk+ interface to the
volume rendering API developed at Stanford. Its not complete yet, but
I have used it to create a few useful electron density renderings for the
Condensed Matter Theory Group at NCSU.

GtkVolrender is a program I wrote for my final project in a computer graphics
course. Its a simple direct volume renderer.
Sisyphus is a very simple program that creates looping movies on your desktop
from a collection of image files that you provide. Sisyphus was written with
the aid of the SDL multimedia library.
