Thanks for giving it go!

Yep, rtr is cool and I hope use it (or similar) for more than demos - 
eventually.

Aside: Credit for the real time ray tracing feature goes back mostly to 
Chris and Thorsten - as far as I know. My work amounts to getting it to 
work with unix/linux builds - with Jerome providing helpful background 
information.

The test scene set up is mine and it explores another way to parse a 
multi frame animations once. Just need to work out how to capture each 
rendered frame to an image file...

Aside: There is too that crazy-neat, more or less works already, idea of 
Kenneth's for using rtr to build up better radiosity samples files. Need 
to get back to playing with that and the related ideas of otherwise 
implemented/faked radiosity file creation...
