This is a frame from what I'm working on.  I really like the colors, and 
I like it as a still.  Too bad the animation on it is pretty weak.
*And* my ttFireworks tool generated a 559MB include file for this, which 
seems excessive. :)

yes, me too.  would make a fine poster.  first thought the silhouette was the
"Marlboro man", the stetson I guess.  :-)  but now think it's a female?

That's a really nice effect.  Hopefully you can massage the animation into
something a bit better to your liking.

Glad to see you're back running the render farm.   :)

559 MB is - large.  I'm sure I have movies that take up less space.
That's 559 MB of TEXT??? :O

Maybe we should work on getting you access to a quantum computer, or you could
convince the NSA that there are secret encoded messages that can only be seen
upon rendering...  (large, with _sweet_ radiosity and antialiasing settings)

After all the colors die down (fireworks fizzle out), this is what's 
left.  "Marlboro ma'am".

I really like the way the outline came out; the body, eh.  It's hard to 
convert color to greyscale and select pixels greater than a threshold. 
Her hair looks like a matted mess.  Cute belly button, though.

One entry looks like:
#declare _sparksV[31118]=<119.4,1144.59,3974.28>;
#declare _sparksR[31118]=<0,0,0>;
#declare _sparksC[31118]=<0.423887,0.435522,0.419685>;
#declare _sparksS[31118]=1.4;
#declare _sparksT[31118]=0.823256;

which is Vector, Rotation, Color, Scale, Transparency.
Hmm, thanks.  Now that I look at it, I can turn that into a macro.
I tried a 2-d array, but I couldn't get mixed arrays to work (do they work?)

AFAIK, they do.

http://news.povray.org/povray.bugreports/thread/%3Cweb.5d23e03185121475799a5f510%40news.povray.org%3E/?tmax=100

TreeLimbJim is apparently pretty experienced in this area.  Perhaps you would
find some correspondence profitable.

With regard to the 2D array, in the thread referenced, I posted a link to
another [old] thread where you can make a master array out of arrays of
different types.  Presumably this is functionally identical to a 2D array, but I
guess it fools POV-Ray into it's an array of ... arrays.

If all else fails, there's no reason not to wrap scalar values into vector data
types.  Scale and transparency would easily sit in <S, T> and solve the problem.

Of course, with THAT much data, I might be tempted to see how tightly I could
pack it...

The comments here are great:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11439796/how-can-i-encode-two-numbers-in-a-single-integer

I have, on more than one occasion, started perusing some really interesting
code, admiring the topic, the ingenuity, puzzling over parts of it, gasping at
the insanity of the undertaking ...   and wondering Who the F--- WROTE this
crazy ....?

Oh.   It was me.   :O  :|

:D

I think my latest project may be veering over that line...

as BE said, mixed arrays work.  used one in:

Yes, I remember when you did that. I thought I did anyway. :)
I guess this means I need to update my POV-Rays (qtpovray and povrayws)
