Movies-on-Request for Run-on-Request runs
The user of CCMC visualizations can now specify the start and end time of a movie request from the standard visualization interfaces of existing Run-on-Request runs ("run_iono2d.cgi" for 2D ionosphere data of Earth-Magnetosphere model outputs and "run_idl3d.cgi" for 3D data for any model outputs).
From the visualization interfaces a request can be sent to a queue and the user will be notified by email once the request is completed. The completion may take only a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the complexity of the data, the length of the movie requested and the position in the Movie-on-Request queue at the time of the request.
The Movie-on-Request system generates the movie and in addition, images and data files can be requested for each time step. The movie file (animated GIF), individual images, and data output files can be downloaded through the CCMC FTP server (URLs will be returned by email to the user).
