Sorry, Markus I did not complete the topic (space settlement.) I
was working on some (pov isosurface) and was taking to long to render
for animation.

I have only the first shot of my own animation rendered.  I haven't 
really worked on it much.

Regards,
John

Hi John,
Yup, the motivation is just not there. I have been working on some C++ stuff
and
a little pov on the side using Mr. BORÅS SmokeGenerator....pretty cool
stuff.

Take care
Darin

No worries, i'm finding it hard to work on it, too. (got preparations 
for a trade fair this weekend) Well, there are still three more 
week(ends) to go, so i guess i won't be letting my new "circular tube" 
space settlement model go to waste (though i guess i'll cut down on my 
first draft of the storyline, for now somehow aptly labelled "requiem").

If the final animation ever sees the light of day (there's actually a 
good chance for that, though i guess i'll have to upload it to my 
webspace and post the URL here, instead of it ever showing up on the 
IRTC itself), then it's going to be about a research trip to a lifeless 
station accidentally crossing path with the solar system. Last scene was 
planned to be a shot of an envelope labelled "Incoming Ring Type Craft, 
2007" (note the acronym ;)

I was actually looking forward for this to be a little inside joke, with 
the IRTC being back up and running by now. Seems to turn into foreboding 
instead... ah well, maybe i'll be able to do something beyond the IRTC 
limits, like a... a... a five-minute epic instead of a 3:45 epic! ;)
Not sure where to post something like that, though... youtube just isn't 
my cup of tea.

I thought the end date for the space settlement was 23rd April, I'm still
working on mine - being honest only just really got started but I've got a
script and everything.

Its a crying shame that just when I decide to get back into raytracing the
IRTC thing dies on its feet. (That and I break my shoulder, the resulting
pain keeping me up at night with consequential lowering of IQ over the past
few weeks).

I'd be happy to lend a hand with dev/admin work for a new competition site.
My day job is pretty much Java based but I'm sure PHP/Perl wouldn't be too
hard to get upto speed with.

Well, i've got no objections to continuing a long-standing IRTC 
tradition of dragging out the due date ;)

It really is. I thought i could do a "participate once a year" schedule 
(after all, there *are* things like Real Life [don't need an additional 
"Second Life", thankyouverymuch ;) ] or "can't make head nor tail of 
that topic", and now that i've finally gotten a comfortable workflow... 
like you said.

Ouch. Get well...

IIRC, the guys at irtc.stills are considering adding the option for 
animation entries to their plans for the interim page. Not sure if this 
stand-in contest is going to be POV only, or as open as the IRTC.
