Claim of US Patent No. 10,140,772

1. A method, implemented at a computer system that includes at least one processor, for visualizing virtual electromagnetic (EM) particle emissions in a computer-generated virtual environment, the method comprising:accessing one or more portions of data representing virtual EM particle emissions emitted by at least one virtualized EM particle emitter;
generating a virtual particle visualization of at least a portion of the virtual EM particle emissions being emitted from the virtualized EM particle emitter within the virtual environment, the virtual particle visualization including an indication of the virtual EM particle emissions' interactions with other elements in the virtual environment; and
presenting the generated virtual particle visualization in the computer-generated virtual environment.
