I am always underestimating how long an animation should be.

I hope you do but I'm still waiting to finish the one that drew me to 
PovRay, last century. ;)

Here's another version with more frames in it, thus a bit longer and slower than
the first one. The animation consists of 2 separate parts again, so I couldn't
manage to make the transition from 1st to 2nd quite as smooth as I had wanted.
Well, better luck next time then. :)

Yes, that is better. :)

What is causing it to go out of focus? Is that the isosurface or is the 
space pilot had too much to drink? :)

It is really hard to do just using PovRay. A third party tool to fade 
the clips together. Would probably be a good idea.

Having said that I did attempt to do it in the animation below. About 8 
seconds in I put a transparent box in front of the camera then played 
with the normals to fuzz things up.

I was experimenting with some BVH movement files in Poser.

I like to think the probe keeps auto-adjusting/recalibrating during the
closing-in. Also the local conditions can have their effects on the equipment as
well due to eg. pressure, radiation, magnetic field and so on. :)

Now when I think of it, a buzzing sound combined with the focus effect would be
cool. :D

Aye, afterwards I was also thinking of some kind of fade effect added there some
way. For these two animations I just quickie-used VirtualDub on my computer at
work, and didn't take a further look at the features that thoroughly yet. But
gotta check again, and possibly fiddle around more on the future stuff to come.
:)

Oh, and technically I was playing around with focal blur and camera angle. :)

That works for me. :)

Understandable, but since it is just a WIP...

I've not used VirtualDub for a long time and can't remember its features.

Two things at the same time?
Hmm! :)

All in all the scene is somewhat minimalistic. An f_wrinkles isosurface
surrounded by scattering media. No light_source on this one, but emission on the
media object instead. Then my usual stuff with radiosity and focal blur. I added
the clock variable also to emission value, so that brightness changes throughout
the animation and also gives a slight fade here and there. A lot of "what if I
do this" was naturally involved. My experiments with animation shall continue.
:)

Hehe yeah, there's a lot going on at the same time: planetoid closing in towards
the camera, camera itself rotating and also angle changing, media scaling,
emission going up and down, and focal blur taking a wild ride on both aperture
and focal_point. :D

I'm impressed that you can keep all that in your mind. :)

I generally think tat changing two things at the one time is adventurous. :)
