    I'm not too sure about that. What if they planned it this way so they 
didn't have to burden themselves with it any more, I mean, whoever was in 
charge, was in charge for a very long time - I can see that they got bored 
with it, I can see that they didn't want this burden any more, and I can see 
that they may have had problems passing the buck to someone other than that 
young lad who lives in a field all alone with no electricity or broadband 
cables around him. Damn, no cellphone too. Not even paper and pen, toboot. 
Fairplay to him though, at least he tried once.

  If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to hold my hand up. (I hope I am wrong).

      I certainly hope so. And even if yours is the only one, you won't be 
disappointing me.  :o)

Art is subjective.  I would submit your average YouTube video of some skate
punk racking himself doing a rail slide doesn't constitute "art", but
beauty is in the eye of the beholder :)

I would, except that the "topic" would be more of an "alleged topic" for 
anything I did.

At the moment, when I'm not playing Diablo II, I'm slowly whipping up 
some macros to do Catmull-Clark surface subdivision, so that the next 
version of my modeler will be useful.

Regards,
John

Right, let's talk about low expectations ;)

I had some trouble getting the data through to Steve by mail 
(we resorted to trying a download after that failed), but it 
should be up and available at TINA-CheP soon.

For the curious that aren't afraid of "MPEG compression 
rash", it's currently stored at:
http://www.asamnet.de/~altendom/irtcstuff/maal_req.mpg
(9.5 MB)

For the size-doesnt-matter folk, there's also a larger and 
cleaner version at
http://www.asamnet.de/~altendom/irtcstuff/maal_req.480x240.mp4
(23.8 MB)

Comments always welcome...
(and yes, i realize i'm the cinema4d-black-sheep in a POVray 
newsgroup, thankyouverymuch ;)

-Markus

P.S.: Who in this newsgroup is really, really, honestly, 
seriously going to build something for "The black robe" 
animation topic?

I downloaded the big file. Impressive and sad.

Not me I'm afraid.

    My friend, you are more than welcome around here.

    Don't forget that it's an 'interpretation' of the title. "The Black
Robe" could be the name of a starfleet battle cruiser, a public house, a
euphemism for a disease, the name of a race horse, the name of a secret
sect, a wizards' special clothing, etc. What you do with it is down to you.
Personally, I really like it, and I'm thinking of entering the Animations*
as well as the Stills too.

    *Animations will DEFINATELY be included on our new website, so get your
thinking cap on. It will be ready for approximately the middle of July to
upload your file, (>12MB cap). Look out for an update on this in the coming
months.  :)

      ~Steve~

I was unaware we were given an extra 2MB ---- It's Great ---- 
Thank you,
Darin   (I find so much joy in the little things)

Um, do you mean to say that animations must be a *minimum* of 12 megabytes?

Regards,
John
(who thinks that it was a typo.)

Hey, that's easy to do! Just increase the bitrate of the 
compressor :)

No, my guess would be it's the upload file size limit of the 
web server's script engine, since it was mentioned earlier 
the new website's going to be heavily automated. Not 
necessarily connected to the file size limit as declared in 
the IRTC rules.

I wouldn't complain about a 20% file size increase, either :)
