# ALICE Open Data Blender animation
## Project Description
This project has the purpose of generating a 3D animation of an ALICE particle collision event, inside the LHC, using data obtained from CERN's Open Data Portal, which makes ESDs - Event Summary Data files, that contain information about such events - open and available for analysis.
ESD files regarding the ALICE experiment can be found on http://opendata.cern.ch/search?page=1&size=20&experiment=ALICE, and they should be processed using the Aliroot software, as indicated in the AliESD_Example git repository: https://git.cta.if.ufrgs.br/ALICE-open-data/AliESD_Example/tree/Blender_animation
The software that makes the animation is Blender, which is free and open source. Blender's 2.79b version should be downloaded for this project, and can be found on https://www.blender.org/download/releases/2-79/
The animation making can be summarized in three basic steps:
1) Downloading of an ESD file (for example, any file on this list: http://opendata.cern.ch/record/1102);
2) Processing of ESD file using Aliroot macros;
3) Run code to generate Blender animation using the ESD processing results.
## Requirements
* Blender 2.79b
