AViz is a tool to graphically display results of atomistic simulations. These results typically consist of large data sets of coordinates, where the coordinates represent atoms or spins in three-dimensional space.
AViz lets you view the data sets, and you can easily produce stills and sequences of stills ready to be turned into animations.
AViz is coded using the Qt toolkit and the OpenGL graphics library. It runs on UNIX-systems on which Qt and OpenGL is installed.
AViz makes use of various SoQt widgets developed by Coin (www.coin3d.org), but does not use Coin's alternative implementation of the Inventor 3D graphics library.
AViz is developed at the Computational Physics Group, Technion, Haifa (Israel).
- AViz requires the following:
- Qt >= 4.8 (with opengl support)
- PNG development library (i.e. libpng-dev)
For Qt > 5, Qt X11 Extras is needed (i.e. on Ubuntu, install libqt5x11extras5-dev package).
To build avis, run:
cd src qmake aviz.pro make
An executable binary called aviz will then be created
Documentation in HTML format and PostScript can be found in the doc directory
A man page can be installed. See the makefile in the man directory for more information
