In addition to downloading and analyzing data, visualization is a crucial step in any analysis pipeline. The creation of images and videos from data is crucial for both inspecting the results of analysis steps and for communicating one's findings. BrainGlobe developed brainrender to facilitate the creation of high quality 3D interactive renderings of anatomical data. The necessity to visually explore increasing large and rich datasets requires the creating of 3D interactive renderings: given the complicated 3D structures of many types of data (e.g. neuronal morphologies), 2D alternatives are a poor substitute for 3D renderings. However, the creation of high quality renderings remains a challenging problem. brainrender provides a user-friendly interface and a powerful and flexible rendering tool to ensure that any scientist can create rich and beautiful renderings of their anatomical data.
