Hyperjump (& black hole) visuals

Post by impaktor »

I'm starting a thread on other ways to animate the effects when jumping to hyperspace, because I think ultimately there must be cooler/better ways. E.g. interstellar (the movie) does some really interesting things.

But what triggered me was:

and their paper on the math:

That's quite neat! Would certainly look great when you'd jump close to a planet.
But how it would look beyond c?

Feels like we discussed and shared links to shaders that does this already somewhere here on the forum, but if not here goes the Interstellar paper, which seems like it would fit in this topic:

"Gravitational Lensing by Spinning Black Holes in Astrophysics, and in the Movie Interstellar"

Also worth pointing that it took 20 hours to render a frame for the Movie ;)

By the time it's implemented in pioneer, we have super-fast quantum computers!

Have we posted this somewhere before? We must have? (I think of "hyperjump visuals" to also include black holes, I'll update subject title to reflect this)

"How to draw a Black Hole - Geodesic raytracing in curved spacetime"

Also, these pictures are cool:

Here are some stunning raytraced black hole examples that only needs 4 vertices:

Really cool video by Scott Manley, going through a wormhole modelled by raytracing:

What Wormholes Would Actually Look Like According To Physics (VR/360)

In part two he will explain how he did it.

It would be really cool if our entrance / exit "hypercloud" + hyperspace tunnel looked anything resembling what is seen in that video.

That would be cool, we'd need to generate the target system to have the visuals to render into
