Well, after three months of rendering on numerous computers, I wanted to share
the first 1200+ frames of my POV Ray mandelbulb animation.

Many thanks to all the users here who posted their observations.  You helped me
quite a lot.

Here is a sample of my INI file, taken from a dedicated AMD 965 computer:
Initial_Frame=0
Final_Frame=8000
Subset_Start_Frame=1261
Subset_End_Frame=2000
Initial_Clock=0
Final_Clock=10
Output_File_Type = T
Input_File_Name=mandelbulb_base_redo_accuracy.pov
Output_File_Name=C:\scene54\BaseAnimV6\fr0
Cyclic_Animation=On
Pause_when_Done=Off
Width=1920
Height=1080
Quality = 9
Antialias_Depth=4
Antialias=on
Antialias_Threshold=0.025
Jitter_Amount=0.0
Jitter = 0ff
Test_Abort_Count=100

I can post my POV file if you want to see it.

Maybe someone has an idea of how to make this better.

Don't mean to sound rude, but quite frankly, i don't see how this animation
benefits from being rendered at 1080p. Maybe I'm overlooking something?

I'm quite impressed by your patience concerning render time though! :)

Regards Roman

Well, the individual frames look so much better at 1920x1080.

I suggest viewing at 1080P on a computer which also supports that resolution.

I have actually had a strong response from my other forums where I posted this
and good hit counts on the video so far.

Guess, I will take my work elsewhere and resurface when the POV Ray community
comes back.

We're here  ;-)

Nice animation--especially near the end; that looks rather creepy (in a good
way.)

Unfortunately, the 1080p version on YouTube took quite a while to download via
my somewhat slow 'DSL' broadband 'net connection (well, seven minutes *is* a
long time) and then 'stutters' on playback; not so with one of your lower-rez
versions--which, on my 15" CRT monitor, looks as good as the 1080p version.
(Sorry to say so, but true.) Maybe that's to be expected; believe me, I'd love
to have a hi-rez widescreen monitor! But I imagine that not everyone can afford
such a luxury.

Nice work, though.

Ken
