Compare smooth and linear interpolation. Both of these animations use the same keyframes. In the linear one there are two angles or jolts in the motion, one at 2 seconds in and the other at 4, but in the smooth one there are none.
They were rendered with this frames 30 to 120 of this sequence with this command:
env begin=30 end=120 qs=0.1 ss=0.25 flam3-animate < cr3.flam3You can set the interpolation from linear and angular to smooth Catmull-Rom splines on any keyframe. It then applies to the interpolation from that flame to the next one. You cannot apply smooth interpolation to the first or last keyframes of a sequence.
Thanks to Chris Ursitti for the genome used as the basis for this example.
Reduced lag between sheep, Reduced BitTorrent processor usage, Fixed runtime error, Added all torrent's status to display
Under specific conditions, the bittorrent client would cause all other traffic on the machine to grind to a halt. The new torrent thread looks at all seeds on the client every 10 minutes to find the 3 worst-seeded torrents and seeds those only.
Golan is at the forefront of artists expressing themselves through computer programming. In these interactive works, he uses sophisticated computer vision as well as more traditional composition to make an uncanny collaborator out of the computer. The machine watches Golan and follows along, elaborating and playing with him. The work is so polished the gears of the technology are hidden. Its retro and funny and our future all at the same time. Don't miss it.
In case any of you wonder how I get by without a day job.... I live in the Tenderloin. On the way to Dorkbot I saw someone on the street screaming. After Dorkbot I was out getting a beer and I saw someone crying and bleeding in there, then the cops showed up.
rename XML attribute "estimator" to "estimator_radius". fix the progress callback. add use_mem envar. move palette database to external file. cleanup namespace. fix flam3-convert. add new variations blur, julian, and juliascope. add experimental color shifting via "shift" envar. supports finalxform. can read hex palette format. avoids the "square" that appears from NaNs. release as 2.7b5.
Eliminate unreasonable static storage. When changing generations only delete sheep from the generation we are leaving. This allows keeping archives of sheep in the cache without fear of deletion.
Faster display of first sheep.
libtorrent now sends client version and ID in agent string, Improved Seed handling, Reduced lag between sheep, Improved dead torrent cleanup, Better error handling, Fixed low framerate if not downloading bug, Improved framerate on startup.
The Philippines were purchased from the Spanish after the Spanish-American war, the one started after highly suspect claims that the USS Maine was sabotaged were used by the Hearst newspapers to inflame the public. In fact, this episode is the origin of the term "yellow journalism".
Filipinos however had been fighting for their independence from the Spanish, and didn't cooperate with their new masters. They were declared "outlaw bandits" by the Americans, who sent in over 100,000 troops without a declaration of war. They insisted on calling it the "Philippine Insurrection" to legitimize it and avoid liability claims by veterans. US soldiers regularly wrote home bragging about committing atrocities. Villages were burned and civilians were placed in concentration camps. General Jacob H. Smith, a veteran of the Wounded Knee massacre, ordered his troops to "Kill everyone over ten."
Vastly outgunned, it wasn't long before the Filipinos gave up on conventional war and turned to guerilla war, but by 1901 their leader was captured and the Christianized, Tagalog northern islands were "pacified". The Muslim southern islands however had never been conquered by the Spanish, and were politically separate. The Moros, as they were known, had been led by the Americans to believe they could retain their religion and autonomy, but that didn't last.
The Moro rebellion lasted for 10 years. The low-point was the Moro Crater Massacre, aka the Battle of Bud Dajo. Major General Leonard Wood led the assault with 540-790 solidiers. The Moros were holed up in a forfied volcano crater. Every single man woman and child was killed. Wood was named Army Chief of Staff a few years later, and eventually ran for the Republican Presidential nomination, winning New Hampshire but losing to Warren Harding. Ever heard of the Teapot Dome scandal? Did you know it was about oil?
Deja Vu. It just goes on and on. I have to quit this and get some real work done.... Oh yea, so what does this have to do with Mark Twain? He worked to oppose the annexation of the Philippines as vice-president of the Anti-imperialist League.
