Leverage the Power of your GPU

Presented on: November 9, 2022
Instructors: Timothée Chabat & François Mazen
Scientific visualization relies on a number of post processes and visualization techniques in order to make a meaningful interpretation of the data, such as glyphs or iso-surfaces. While most of the time these processes happen on the CPU it is actually possible to use the GPU directly to explore your data. Come and discover how to use these capabilities in ParaView through this Kitware’s webinar!
