Oh thanks! :)

But in the meantime I've made a newer and much better version which can be
found here:
http://rsj.mobilixnet.dk/3d/anims/anims.html

I posted a note about it in povray.binaries.images, but you may have missed
it.

Thank you! Glad you like it. :)

I've made a newer version that is more realistic which can be found here:

I posted a note about it in povray.binaries.images, but you may have missed
it.

Everybody has lauded your animation, but I need to say it too: it's amazing!

Congratulations,

No, not the one on my webpage. An earlier version that I've not published
anywhere. Later I managed to fix the problem, and that's why the one on my
webpage looks fine.

He *is* varying the pace (he moves quicker in the start and end of the
animation). But stopping completely is still a problem, as I haven't worked
out support for that yet.

Thank you!

Indeed the positive reactions have been overwhelming! That, needless to say,
is a great motivation to continue. :)

My mistake - btw the anim *almost* loops, can that be fixed?*

* as in "does loop" rather than "doesn't even attempt to loop"
