Visualization Toolkit: Faster, Better, Open Scientific Rendering and Compute
Abstract:
The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is an open source scientific visualization framework. We will describe the new VTK rendering backend which targets modern GPUs, taking advantage of the flexible programmable pipeline. This has resulted in significant improvements in rendering performance, especially with large geometries (20 million+ triangles) being rendered over 100 times faster, without significant API changes, with near identical rendering. This offers a drop-in replacement for existing applications, and a turn-key open source visualization framework for new applications. The VTK-M offers highly parallel and efficient algorithms for scientific data. The architecture, and how it will interact with VTK will be discussed.
