Is there a way for Plotly to construct a static 2D image that is a camera snapshot of a complex 3D scene?
I have geometric data sets that Plotly renders beautifully. However, it only works on small examples like tens of MB of generated HTML. Most examples are much bigger than that and when I try to render a full instance, all the browsers that I’ve tried fail to finish loading the Plotly output. When the generated HTML is a few megabytes, it’s fine. When it’s 50+MB, Safari can still render it, but Chrome cannot. When it’s 500MB+ or a few GB of generated svg/webgl awesomeness, then it seems there’s no hope for viewing it…
Unless there’s a way to compute camera snapshots?
I see how to do something like this with numpy arrays and perspective transformations on the underlying data. However, what I really want is Plotly’s beautiful rendering of lines in a 3D scene. While my underlying data has points, they are connected, and the topology of the connectedness is an essential feature for viewing. Plotly’s line graphs do a nice job showing this connectedness, so what I’d really like to have is the camera’s 2D view matrix as a snapshot image.
Thank you for any guidance.
