From an error message, I see some options of the BalloonEmbedding method for GraphLayout:

Graph::moptx: Method option xxx in BalloonLayout is not one of {AngleSpacing, EvenAngle, OptimalOrder, RootVertex, Rotation, SectorAngles, VertexSize}

EvenAngle, OptimalOrder, RootVertex, and SectorAngles are mentioned here. But can anyone give introductions to AngleSpacing, Rotation, and VertexSize? I am reproducing the layout in the paper Interactive data mining with 3D-parallel-coordinate-trees. Telling from the name, I guess BalloonEmbedding+ AngleSpacing may be close:

One additional question, does BalloonEmbedding try to preserve the edge weights (distances)? Thank you.
