Hey POV-Ray Friends,

This animation was mostly completed a couple years ago but I never posted it. I
think the reason was that I couldn't think of a good intro for it. Well I never
did come up with a good intro so I just recycled some text from another project
and considered it done forever.

There's really no point to this animation but as always it was fun and
educational to make.

Youtube really butchered the quality but it's too big to post here. Sorry.

which is a good enough reason in itself.

fwiw, I liked the animated background better than the symbol.  :-)

Google/YouTube have a page detailing the "preferred" settings:

I'm glad you liked it - the background was fun to make.

That's very helpful. I didn't know one could upload 60 FPS video.

Have a great day!

Hey POV-Ray friend,  :D

maybe you could check out limitlessmindset.com

Looks like Jonathan has an infinity symbol for his website - maybe he might like
a nice ray-traced one or an animation...

Just an idea, and connecting people with similar interests.

Wow, that's some wild stuff! The infinity symbol I made was actually part of a
logo I thought up back in the '80s while I was in college. I thought I had
discovered a way to make a perpetual motion device with magnets. I figured I'd
need a logo for my future multi-billion dollar energy company so I sketched an
infinity symbol with a lightning bolt in the middle. So just for fun, years
later I made that logo with POV-Ray (posted in the animations section September
seventh, two thousand seventeen). Here's another variation of it that I think
would make a lovely logo. It has a flat area that needs to be fixed (not easy)
but in my opinion it's still somewhat interesting in it's current unfinished
form. For the time being I've made the best of it by putting my initials in the
flat area to make it look like it's supposed to be there.

Dave Blandston

And that's when I gave up the drugs.

Ha ha! I found my notes years later (including the sketch, which inspired the
POV project) and tried to find the error in my computations just for fun.

Perhaps if you somehow found a way to "wrap" around from your initials to the
infinity and back again, you could go from a David Blaine - type logo to the
"reversed" infinity "halves" and back - and then do some sort of funky 3D
rotational trickery.

Or perhaps something to do with shadows a la Douglas R. Hofstadter's "Godel,
Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid"
https://prodimage.images-bn.com/pimages/9780465026562_p0_v3_s550x406.jpg

or maybe incorporate the initials and the infinity a different way...
