Scientific visualization methodologies are being utilized increasingly in attempts to understand physical phenomena via mathematical and simulation model results. Presented herein are the results of a visualization project which produced a vectorized, high-resolution, ray-traced animation of the dynamics of a protein molecule. The resulting animation was recorded on 35-mm file, with a resolution of 1024 × 1024 pixels with 24 color bits. Run-time statistics were also collected which relate image generation parameter ranges and interdependencies.
