Here goes nothing:
http://www.asamnet.de/~altendom/irtcstuff/index.html

(Notice for future archive diggers: This address will be 
404'd once the real IRTC is again updated... it is not 
intended to be permanent.)

If, for now, you want your movie to appear in that list, 
too, and you've entered this round of the IRTC animations, 
please either send me the files to publish *) or just a link 
to the three IRTC files **).

*) This means i need to put them on my webspace. Don't send 
your files if you're not OK with that! As for the mail 
address, try the one from the news header :)

**) In that case, i'll link to your files. If you remove 
them from your webspace, the links will be broken.

Ok Markus -
I just emailed you my animation submission. Like I said, this is my
first time. Tell me what you think......I know I could have added
a lot more detail.....I watched yours, and you kicked my ass.
So can you tell me why your 9.5 meg animation is 5 times longer
than my 9.5 meg animation. Do you use a compression program?
Just trying to find answers and learn...........

Usually, i'm rendering out the frames as 720x360 (720 means 
it's not going to be re-scaled, just letterboxed when it 
goes to DVD, which has 720x576 size).

I'm a mac guy, so this is a quicktime .mov file, with jpeg 
at maximum quality. About 600 MB for 3:44. I export that to 
DV stream AVI, and copy it over to my PC (haven't found a 
well-working MPEG compressor for mac yet...).

I run that file through TMPEGenc (which has a very 
unscrupulous setting of 320 kbits/sec for video + 32 
kbit/sec mono audio) with an output size of 320x160). I try 
to ignore the horrible compression artefacts :) and that's 
about it.

Without a soundtrack, you may go to 360 kbit video for 9.99 
MB at 3:44.

I've picked that time when i was using Astarte's M.Pack, 
which had a lowest possible 360 kBit preset for that. Ah, 
the days of MacOS 9... long gone, as is M.Pack.

Alright, i'm fetching them now. Should be up in ten minutes. 
Sorry for the name mix-up, i've not yet received your zip 
file. I guess my mailbox isn't half as tough  as i thought, 
or the zip has triggered some over-zealous antivirus blocker 
- come to think about it, if a run-of-the-mill 50 kByte 
virus is nasty, imagine the havoc a 10-MB-virus could wreak ;)

Cool - Thank you Markus,
It's nice to see it there. Well a pseudo irtc page is better than nothing.
What's up with this guy http://billmarrs.com/ - he is on the irtc
admin team and has an active web page. Has anyone talk to him?

Once again thanx, the page looks great.....

I've sent a mail. He's updating his LiveJournal entry rather regularly, 
so i'm hoping we'll hear back from him soon.
