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.

    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?

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 :)

It probably wouldn't affect me, unless the 12M limit was a lower limit; 
I've never had to cut to reduce the size of my .mpg files.

     No, no, sorry, I meant an upper cap of 12 Mb's. Seeing as how the 
Stills get an extra 100kb's, then I thought anims should get a little extra 
too.

    Well, that's what it is...  A file size increase.   :o)
