Description:


    This is a video of a Space Shuttle launch. The position and attitude data was taken from an actual mission, as well as the audio. The Abel Image Research software was used for rendering. There are about 60,000 polygons, most of which are in the solid rocket motor exhaust plumes. A separate model of the rocket plumes was generated for each frame by means of bandpass filtered noise using Fourier transforms to define the polygon vertices.
