Generating photorealistic images of astrophysical simulations can enhance the experience of watching galactic visualizations for both the specialists who study the data and the average person who is simply interested in outer space. Unfortunately, the astrophysicist who is creating the simulations typically lacks the expertise required to generate photorealistic images. Likewise, a 3D artist may be unaware of the physics behind certain astrophysical events. We aim to use Spiegel, a user… Expand
