Hi(gh)!

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: 
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8a/Gergeti_Trinity_Church_and_Mt._Kazbeg_01.jpg/800px-Gergeti_Trinity_Church_and_Mt._Kazbeg_01.jpg

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

maxdigits=3

for a in $(seq 0 719)
do
   b=$(printf '%0'$maxdigits'd' $a)
   povout="Georgien/georgia_panorama-"$b".png"
   echo $povout
   povray +ipovearth.pov +o$povout +w1024 +h768 +a0.3 +k$a
done

# end code

See you in Khyberspace!

Yadgar
