As a HPC experiment I created a gravity simulator. It is a simple machine realizing the classic n-body problem. The code itself can run both sequentially and on cluster (using PVM). Here are some movies I rendered on the university computation farm.

Warning: those files tend to be enormous...

  1. A first try, just after integrating a raytracer.
  2. After implementing camera control.
  3. Made the camera go closer, adding colours.
  4. A bigger simulation.
  5. Top, Front - Implemented double cameras, small simulation.
  6. Top, Front, Composite - A big simulation, unfortunately with dropped frames and wrong universe parameters.
  7. Top, Front - Above simulation retried with much less dense cloud.
