Discontinuity, a tool to help make animations with POV-Ray, has finally had
its first release. The first release is meant to give a taste of what
Discontinuity will eventually do.

POV-Ray has always had the capability of creating animations. However, the
process was always combersome and difficult. In an effort to make it
easier, I started writing a keyframe-based program to ease the process.

However, I never got around to finishing the program. In an effort to allow
the project to continue, I decided to put it up on SourceForge (an
open-source community) and hope that other people will finish it off.

I am still in the process of cleaning up and commenting the code, but it's
not too bad and I would like to hear some initial reactions to the program.
Do people think its a worthwhile project? Would anyone be willing to work
on it? I don't have much time these days, and though I am willing to
adminstrate the project for the next few months, I will have to stop in the
near future.

Take a look at http://discontinuity.sourceforge.net/. Feel free to contact
me for more information.

I can't offer any help coding but I would be happy to try it out if you get
an exe...
Good luck,
Dennis

You forgot to mention this is a java app.  IMHO a good thing.

So, what do people think of it? Do you think that this will solve all of our
POV-Ray animation problems?

I'm cleaning up the code a bit more. Then I'm going to get the Save/Open
Export buttons to actually open a dialog box instead of writing to
somewhere in /home/shalom like it does now. Then I'll maybe put up a simple
demonstration file. Then it will be ready for development?

Shalom
