Another shot from the n42e044 ASTER elevation data tile... I gleaned the
position of the camera from OpenStreetMap, placing the start point for
routing at the church. Obviously this is slightly east of a somewhat
higher triangle boundary... and I wonder that the mountain does not
stand out as clearly as on this photo:
I also tried a two-tile scene (n41e044 and n42e044) of the Tbilisi area
hoping to get the Greater Caucasus as backdrop, but the parsing process
was killed due to insufficient RAM.
In another development, however, I managed to bypass the "Operation
timed out" error by directing the animation loop via a bash script
rather than POV-Ray internal loop:
# begin code
for a in $(seq 0 719)
b=$(printf '%0'$maxdigits'd' $a)
povray +ipovearth.pov +o$povout +w1024 +h768 +a0.3 +k$a
# end code
See you in Khyberspace!
