VMD: Interactive Molecular Ray Tracing with NVIDIA OptiX?
Abstract:
We'll describe the adaptation of the popular molecular graphics program VMD for interactive ray tracing using NVIDIA OptiX, on computers ranging from laptops all the way up to large NVIDIA VCA GPU clusters, and petascale supercomputers such as the Blue Waters and Titan. We'll highlight the new OptiX 3.8 progressive rendering and remote device APIs, and show how they are using VMD for both local and remote VCA rendering. We'll highlight the use of OptiX GPU ray tracing for interactive panoramic and omnidirectional projections suited to planetariums, fulldome theaters, and VR headsets (HMDs) such as the Oculus Rift. The session will present the latest VMD+OptiX ray tracing performance data for workstation, VCA GPU clusters, and supercomputers.
