Hey TC Masters,

It's been a while since my last post but I do have a lot of new designs that I will be posting in the near future.  I wanted to share an animation I created using TurboCAD 16 Deluxe, but the file is too big to post :(, so please use the link below to view.  It is a set of concentric hyperbolic structures that are copied and rotated to create the animation.  I included some falling spheres of water to enhance the show.  It is a series of 1,748 jpeg files created by changing the design 1 degree at a time and saving to a jpeg file. The animation is set to music using Windows Live Movie Make.  I hope you enjoy it.

David, stunning work, wonderful!

But, boy, are you a masochist?  Life is too short to spend this amount of effort on something that you can let your PC do for you, while you are asleep, or doing something more useful ;)

Programmes like Animation Lab. (that's a plug), are made to take the drudgery out of this work.  Treat yourself, and then allow us to see what else you can do, without you becoming a slave to your keyboard and mouse!  Animation Lab. will generate all the images you require, but use something else for assembling anything >2GB.  I would guess your work was originally considerably larger than this.

I am sure you are aware of this, but, it will do no harm to repeat it here.  Capturing, or using too many images/second may be counterproductive, because the resources available for rendering the animation, may produce a slightly jerky image, which might improve with fewer images.  It's a balance between quality and smoothness.  Anyway, just a thought.

I hope you will get cracking with something else, when you can find the time.  Thank you for sharing.

Regards Tim

I have one question though - if you don't suffer during the creative process, is it really art? :)

Ah!, well, as I see it, some art is in avoiding the suffering, as much as possible, during the realisation process.
That's probably why I suffered the learning curve of TC and Animation Lab. and can now sit back and let them do the work for me - if you see what I mean.  The creative process is another matter!

Anyway, I may reach out to you for some advice when I get Animation Lab reinstalled.  I feel a new animation in my near future.

We're here to help ???
