"Be careful of working titles, they will take on a life of their own!"

It seemed innocent enough at the time.  I wrote a little piece of music, and had
to save it with some name, and chose "Synthopolis", because that came to mind
from the synthesizer voices I used.

So, what does this have to do with POV-Ray, you might ask?

Well, that darned "temporary name" kept telling me that it
wanted to be more than just a piece of music... so, I decided to make an
animated
music video from it, and the name "Synthopolis" and the march-style sound of the
music made me think of a little parade, in a "little" city.  So I started coding
up some little macros to create city blocks of multi-story buildings, and some
unusual parade floats, and from my recent introduction to "tilt-shift"
photography I wanted to make the POV-rendering even slower, so I added various
levels of focal blurů and (after weeks of coding) the following little music
video happened!  There's still a lot I could do with this, but I wanted to wrap
it up and share the music and animation with everyone.  I did not use SSLT or
radiosity, but things are OK for now.  Let me know your thoughts good or bad!
I'm still learning this stuff!

While the models and textures are quite simplistic, that was nevertheless
one of the coolest things I have seen made in povray for a long time.

Goes to show that intricate detailed modeling&texturing isn't always so
crucial.

Thank you, I appreciate the kind words of an esteemed & knowledgeable ray
tracer, C++ engineer and musician!

This is really awesome.  I love the parade.
"...weeks of coding"  Well, I'm certainly jealous of that ;)
