I am performing some research in Materials Science and am in need of some help. I have a list of about 50 files, each with a column of some 1500 numbers. The numbers in the files pertain to x coordinates for locations of molecules for a number of different rows. A simple example is given below:
In this example, there are four molecules and three rows. In row one, the four molecules have coordinates 1,2,3,4; in row two, 1.1, 2.3, 3.1, 4.5 and so on for row three. This is obviously much simplified, but this is the basic idea. In all, I have 53 of these files, with 30 rows and 50 molecules (x coordinates). These 53 files represent different timesteps for the material. Is there a way to have OpenGL plot these coordinates and then animate them through the 53 timesteps? Any help would be appreciated (I’m just getting started with OpenGL).
