[yt-users] a question on camera with volume rendering

If you can describe the galaxy using a data object (sphere, disk, etc), you
could then do something like galaxy_object.quantities['BulkVelocity']() to
get the motion of just that piece of the data. I'm not sure if that is
helpful for you or not.
I would say that it would be best to get on a more recent version of yt,
where you will be able to use the tranpose, and the north vector will make
more sense with option 1 or 3.
