Hi people

Actually I've never submitted something to the IRTC, but now I like to. I've
made these robot-thing here:
http://news.povray.org/povray.binaries.images/thread/%3Cweb.4aee868aaed4cc17da6353d60%40news.povray.org%3E/?ttop=348708
&toff=200

So maybe doing something with this model but the source is _very_ big.

Does it make any sense to submit something or is the goal to make something tiny
that gives a nice visual result?

Is it necessary to submit the source, or is it just something nice in addition?

best regards, Holger

It's not a short code competition. There have been lots of
submissions with posed humans and other complex input data
so feel free to submit. I'd worry more about fitting your
robot hand into the current topic of "Plants". ;)

It's optional. Sometimes it might also make sense to submit
simplified sources, replacing a huge object with a simple
placeholder (people might learn tricks from your scene
without actually needing to recreate the image).

Thanx!

btw its not only the hand. The post shows the entire growing of the whole robot.

Maybe I let it holding a plant - well, I'm thinking about it.

Best regards, Holger
