We have just opened up our website www.chaos-math.org where you can watch a
two-hour movie made practically entirely in Povray.
It explains the subject of chaos in dynamical systems in a simple way. The film
uses some objects of notorious Povray users (with their permission!)
See the list on the 'Thank You( page of the website.

Well worth the wait. :-D

I loved this thanks.

No thanks to Warner Bros who refused the use of an excerpt from 1950's 
cartoon. ;-)

Yes the teaser is wonderful. I tried to download the whole movie and first
recognised that I have to use bit torrent and then that they implement their own
page as my new home page and didn't allow to change it back. A simple
deinstallation of this bit torrent stuff allowed me to restore my favourite home
page, which is not news.povray.org but the German wikipedia, so I will not come
into the pleasure to look at the whole video, since I will not have this bit
torrent pirate software again. But really a wonderful work. Interesting choice
of European languages... (No real criticism, just an observation by a German).

Best regards,
Michael

"Bittorrent" is not a program. It's a protocol. There are like five
gazillion different bittorrent clients for all possible platforms
(differing in ancillary features, GUI, size, required system resources,
and so on.)

The mistake is in the same category as thinking that "World Wide Web"
means the same thing as "Internet Explorer".

Apparently you downloaded some shady bittorrent client from some shady
website that you shouldn't have (which is a big problem in Windows, given
that there's no centralized repository of trusted software for Windows.)

This is a shame, really, because now you got the impression that
"bittorrent" is a program that hijacks your homepage. This has absolutely
nothing to do with bittorrent. You simply downloaded an alleged client
from somewhere you shouldn't have.

(This reminds me of an acquaintance, who is a Windows user, and once
"tried linux". I have absolutely no idea what exactly he did because
it's impossible to get anything coherent from a computer illiterate,
but seemingly he downloaded a Windows program that was riddled with
malware and adware. I have no idea whatsoever why he thought that was
"linux". Anyways, he got the impression that "linux" is a program that
installs malware in your Windows, and therefore he would never use it
again. I was unsuccessful at explaining to him what linux really is.
It was that kind of computer illiteracy...)

Bittorrent is not a "pirate software". A bittorrent client is basically
not much different from a web browser or news reader. It's used to
download and share big files that would otherwise consume too much
server bandwidth. There's absolutely nothing that implies piracy,
especially in this case.

You should download an *actual* bittorrent client from a trustworthy
source.

I'm a bit unhappy with this post that gives the impression that our new site,
chaos-math.org is associated with malware.
This certainly not the case.
In fact you cannot download anything from our site.
The films you see are embedded from YouTube.

I am not surprised that you are unhappy. I can confirm that you cannot 
download anything from your site.
Michael, probably fell for the trick where the first Google entry was 
loaded with malware. It is easy done. I did it myself a couple of weeks 
ago when downloading FireFox on my sisters PC, using remote desktop. Now 
it is going to cost me a new laptop for her. (Actually it is to the good 
as I have been nagging here to get a new one.)

I've watched this and you other film Dimensions, and both are excellent.
It must have taken an amazing amount of work to write, render, animate, and then
piece it all together with the narration.

Your 3rd film should be a "making of..."   ;)

Thank you very much for two very worthwhile films, which are are entertaining,
educational, show what is possible with POV-Ray, and serve as a motivational
example of what to strive for in my own work!
