The movie shows the evolution of the helium core till from end of
central helium burning till core collapse. Convection is shown as
green hatching, semiconvection as red cross hatching. Specific energy
generation (blue) and energy losses (pink; mostly by plasma
neutrinos), are shown as color shading and each "level" of higher
color intensity represents an order of magnitude higher value, in erg
per gram and second, starting at 1/10 erg per gram and second.
