I finally had the time and inspiration to work on this again, and I think i've
nailed it.

I think I've managed to make the macro capable of handling animation for
multiple simultaneous emitters, but it needs testing.  It should work, in
theory.

Thoughts, suggestions?

Really cool! I had to watch it several times to see that the spray brush was
going up and down (as well as left to right)-- a nice realistic touch.

BTW, when I opened the video in Avidemux (my media viewer of choice), it gave me
this message:

"This video contains B-frames, but presentation time stamps (PTS) are either
missing or monotonically increasing [whatever THAT means!]. Avidemux can try to
reconstruct correct PTS by decoding the entire video. This may take a lot of
time. Proceed?"

(Hmm, "a lot of time"-- it took 3 seconds, ha.)

But I wonder if your .avi muxer is doing something weird or unintended?

In all honesty, that was necessary to get the paint to spread evenly, otherwise
it would be darker at the center.  I could also use a spiral path around the
outside, since it's a circular pattern anyway.

The pattern itself is provided by a pigment. In this case, I'm using an
image-map of the Aperture Science logo. (I'm making a note here: Huge Success!)

The path of the emitter is controlled by a pair of splines, it follows one,
while aiming at the other. The way this is built, it should also dovetail nicely
with my animation macros, but I haven't tried it yet. This animation took a
little over 26 hours to render, but I had to go back and redo the first 45
frames because I changed the color mid-render.

I honestly have no idea, I just use mencoder in bash.  B frames appear to be
"prediction frames" containing only what's changed in the scene.  I have no idea
what causes the problem or how to fix it.

There appears to be a -correct-pts option, but the man page lists it as
experimental, and I know my version of ffmpeg is not up to date. I need to
upgrade my linux distro.

Anyway, glad you like it.

A.D.B.

agree, good effect.  liked the stencil, would have liked to see how it's done.

ouch.  runs perfectly fine here after renaming to drop the '.dat' (different
viewers on (three) separate machines).

See p.General for the macro.
