Hi-

After a few years away from POVRAY I have posted several abstract generative
animations rendered in POVRAY to my YouTube channel.

http://www.youtube.com/user/solporter?feature=mhsn

I'd really like to have some orgainc elements to go with, e.g. drifting fog;
plus focal blur, and arrayed lights, but I have yet to find a good drifting fog
method, and lack the patientce for the expensive ray tracing techniques...

Hope people find these interesting,

Leo


Oops, think I previously posted this to the wrong group...

Very nice work, I enjoyed the abstract nature (and intriguing algorithms you
hint at) of these.  Your color choices are good, not too distracting and garish,
but pleasing.

Probably some light touches (pun intended) with a little more specular
highlights would help the surfaces a bit, as well as a less jerky camera
position during the sequence.  And of course some generative background music
might be fun... have you checked out tones.wolfram.com?

I'll go comment/subscribe to your channel (I'm "SchwanSongs") so you can
critique some of my POV-Ray animations too if you have time.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Nice, almost hypnotic.

Arrayed lights, what about area_light. Those are realy optimised arrays 
of lights. If you use the adaptive option, you can have good quality and 
decent speed.

Adding fog have only a small effect on the rendering speed.

Focal blur can be interesting, but it can kill your rendering speed. 
Also, be sure that you don't overdo it.

Very cool. They remind me of those movies of 4D objects being sliced by 3D.
