I was having Fun With Aspect Ratios. At 40 seconds, the bit where the
monitor shrinks away, rather than slide the video down, I changed the
camera so that the video fits the changing rectangle.
The aspect ratio of the caboose slides from 1.69 to 141.40

Ha! That is really cool. Is the first half of the animation a *single* render
within POV-Ray, with the multiple panes all rendered at once?? If so, I must
have missed the 'how-to' explanation in the past.

I still like that 'rocket exhaust' method you use!

In the second half, I can't say that I understand what the on-screen numbers
represent-- but it looks interesting nonetheless ;-)

Bars and beats?

No, it is 3 renders.  I do Camera2 and Camera3 and then run the main
scene. (Years ago, Warp(?) did an animation with 4 camera angles in a
single render. Maybe that was uberpov?)

Like Stephen said, bars and beats.  When I start a scene, I first run
the DebugBeats version to get the timing of the scene together.  When
the drum machine was on, it was fairly easy; "number of beats / time +
occasional drift".  Now that the drum machine is off ... mathematically
I sucked at holding tempo on the keyboards. :), the retard and hold were
especially tricky to work through.

The hardest part for me is looking at the numbers.  Musicians count
1-2-3-4 and C style arrays count 0-1-2-3.  After 15 years, I see that
"3" and still think it's the middle of the measure, not the 4th beat.

I care because direct.inc contains the timings like this:
#declare Countdown10Start	= Measure(326,2);
#declare Countdown10End		= Measure(327,0);
#declare Countdown9Start	= Measure(327,0);
#declare Countdown9End		= Measure(327,2);
#declare Countdown3Start	= Measure(327,2);
#declare Countdown3End		= Measure(328,0);
#declare Countdown2Start	= Measure(328,0);
#declare Countdown2End		= Measure(328,2);
#declare Countdown1Start	= Measure(328,2);
#declare Countdown1End		= Measure(329,0);

"0" is easy, but I'm always typing "3" for the middle of the measure
instead of the correct "2".

(Btw, the original launch sequence countdown was 10-9-5-6-1 because the
kid can't count yet.)

Oh, the image that I posted in p.b.i was the last frame of Camera2 which
has an extreme aspect ratio, 140:1, but rendered at 500x500, hence the
really tall spheres.

Probably MegaPOV. That one had a camera pigment.
