In Windows 10 with latest Firefox browser, there appears to be no video when I
try to download it; Firefox says...

"No video with supported format and MIME type found"

As a trial, I 'downloaded' my own recent animation in the newsgroups,
"media_spline_art_test_A_ 2_25_22".  Firefox itself immediately starts to play
it as a preview (rather than 'downloading' it, which is now an extra step.) But
I just wanted to test another video against yours, to try and figure out where
the problem lies. Maybe your animation has no actual content? Or has some type
of encoding problem? I thought you would want to know.

Who knows, maybe the problem is with Firefox itself (?)

thank you, yes, do want to know.  :-)  fwiw, I downloaded the vid (via Chrome
browser) to an Android + it plays alright in VLC.  (whether there's "content" is
open to debate :-) but if you cannot convince yr s/ware to play it, hope the zip
archive will work)

"computers are like air conditioners, they stop working when you open Windows."
(read this in someone's signature block once)

I just tried Microsoft's EDGE browser instead of Firefox -- and the video does
download! And plays in all of my video viewers including VLC (except in
Irfanview).

So the problem IS with Firefox. That's mighty strange.

Anyway... I like it! Nicely done.

then that I recall)

now have basic camera control (thanks to Bald Eagle), the attached demonstrates
that I'll need to "fiddle" some more with the settings.  will (hopefully) get to
a "final" version before long, will post the updated source files then.


enjoy, jr.

instead of posting another low-quality anim, I've opted to put the animation "in
the cloud", and a single frame in p.b.i, with ref to this thread (rendering at a
low resolution came at the "cost" of broken up grid lines, though they're not
noticeable when viewing the anim)

<https://drive.google.com/file/d/11gaKIbbZygJH0hm2v39b8SKSgd_QYdCK/view?usp=sharing>

if you don't want to download (a little over 200M), see the attached zip for
source files[*].  on my .. geriatric h/ware (all dual core 4 threads) it takes
well under two hours to render the 4K images.

[*] license GPL v3+.  have tried to make the code "cleaner", the path to adjust
in the scene file is now on line 55, and the last line in the ini (also forgot
to comment out 'display=false' in the same file, sorry).


enjoy, jr.
