In this post I would like to share with you an insight on what I was doing during the previous fortnight.
I have opened a pull request to the ipyvolume repository. I have done several changes to the code, according to the first code review. I am waiting for my pull request to be merged soon. Nevertheless, I have been working on adding alpha blending to the GSOC project. In order to finish this work I will need to configure my color maps usage in the same way as it is done in MNE-Python.
I have also solved a problem with displaying inflated cortex meshes instead of pialed. The two meshes were overlapping. Additional shift for coordinates of vertices of each mesh was required to avoid it. I also have implemented a small change in the way my project code handles the intensity data. The color of a surface needed to be inverted, so the mesh created in my project will be similar to the mesh created via PySurfer.
Over the next two weeks I am going to go through my first evaluation phase. I hope that my changes to the ipyvolume project will be accepted on the next week. Concerning my project, I will need to add surface normals for the meshes, so the output mesh will look smoother. I am going to finish my addition of alpha blending to the project and close the corresponding task. I also plan to create a separate pull request to the ipyvolume project with code style changes that I have done during my work on alpha blending addition.
See you in two weeks,
