Yes, that is really the first one...
It took me a year or so, with a lot of retries and plenty of scenes not used. Of
course I started with examples from Povray users, first I had to figure out how
that works. Later, the manual was more helpful than examples, and for some
problems I wasn't able to solve in Povray, I used the Pre_Frame_Command with
other software (R and python). The liquid simulation was completely offline, but
as Paraview has an option to create Povray code, the integration into a scene
file was not so hard.
You are right, Clarke and Kubrick are mentioned in the credits section...
Maybe that R2D2 will have an appearance in the next video, but a realistic model
will take some time.
Thanks! More will come, but don't ask me when...
