I would really like this to make it to the news section. Two-hour Povray movies
are not produced every day... :

We have 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.

In my opinion it certainly deserves a link to it, on the front page.
Just out of interest how long did it take to render and on what hardware?

The rendering was done on a number of computers at a university. Nothing fancy :
the work was divided manually over the different machines. The final renders of
close to 180,000 individual images was done in a total of about four weeks (but
the computers did not run continuously during all that time.

It *should be* prominently on the news section indeed. Your previous 
hints have not been followed (yet)...

An excellent introduction into a fascinating world.
