jMovie is based on Rickmovie, the seismic data cube viewer currently used by SEP. The code reads the SEP cube in order to convert the SEPLib Header data files into byte arrays. After conversion to byte format, each of the three dimensions of the data cube are displayed separately (Figures 1 and 2). The user can cycle through slices of a dimension manually or as an animation.
I attempted to create a simple version of Rickmovie for the display of SEP cube data sets on the web. I used the Java Advanced Windowing Toolkit (AWT) 1.1 Event Model Laura Lemay (1997) for the user interface and the Image class methods Flanagan (1997) for the graphics.
The following report will discuss how jMovie works, the results obtained from testing, followed by a discussion on future improvements on the utility.
