MegaMol is a cross-platform visualization prototyping framework that was started at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart in context of the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 716. It also includes numerous contributions from the Chair of Computer Graphics and Visualisation of TU Dresden.
MegaMol is the preferred visualization tool of the developers of the molecular dynamics (MD) simulation program ls1 mardyn. It can easily be configured to write native MegaMol file formats.
MegaMol development is and was partially supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 716, by the Intel® Parallel Computing Center program, the ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig Competence Center for Scalable Data Services and Solutions, the ESF program Visual and Interactive Cyber-physical Systems Control and Integration (VICCI), and by BW Stiftung as part of the project Digital Human.
We had a live MegaMol demo running the integrated OSPRay at the Intel booth of Supercomputing 2017. It showed a fluid simulation by our project partners Matthias Heinen and Prof. Jadran Vrabec from the Chair of Thermodynamics and Energy Technology at the University of Paderborn.
VISUS has recently been funded as the first Intel® PCC for Visualization in Europe! With this funding, we plan to integrate Software-Defined Visualization into MegaMol. That way, it will work on a wider range of hardware and easily scale to larger data set sizes. Combined with some other changes, the upcoming 1.3 release already contains […]
As those of you already working with the GitHub-based sources might already have noticed, a whole slew of updates has been pushed to the public MegaMol repository. The current release candidate already contains some of the new features we have been working on the last couple of months, most notably OSPRay integration, an all-new animation […]
The new website of MegaMol is now live, but not yet linked to megamol.org. This fresh start gives us the opportunity to structure information about MegaMol in a clearer way than on the legacy website. Please note that this site is still not finished.
