Having used a previous version (1.1), I was appalled to see no support for
QuickTime output in this version. This renders (pun intended) this version
unusable to me (and I guess many others).
I routinely produce little animations and save them as QuickTime movies.

I'm keeping 1.1

Thanks so much Yvo for your wonderful wonderful work on MacMegaPOV!

The New Universal version of May 26, 2006, weighs in at around 17MB compared
to a little over 6MB for the Old version 1.2 of July 7, 2005. Wow! There
must be two versions of MMP bundled in there, I guess.

Some rough benchmarks give the following results. First, the scene file
calls a number of #include files, each containing a long list of polygons.
I rendered to 600X600 at Quality 9 and anti-alisaing on, Method 2. So far
as I was able I used the exact same settings in both versions. I distrusted
the results on the Old version, so ran the test twice.

Old: parse time, 79 seconds (90 seconds), render time, 78 seconds (78
seconds).
New: parse time, 0 seconds, render time, 22 seconds.


The New version does not need Rosetta and runs native. Still, I am puzzled
that it can rip through all the #include files so very quickly, that parse
time comes to 0 seconds. That is exactly what it seems to take, when I
watch it render. And the Old version slowly slogs through the same #include
files, reading 100K, 200K, 500K, however many "tokens."

At any rate, job well done and thank you very much!

I only wish we still had QuickTime export! I have many animations waiting!
