Description
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Animation of 3 rotating globes connected to each other, allowing to view all
sides of the earth at the same time.

A larger version (8MB) is available, in pix/anim/3Globes.lha (640x480 60 frames)
for amigas with enough RAM and matching video mode.


Usage
¯¯¯¯¯
o Extract the archive to your HD or RAM disk (1MB)
o Workbench: Double-click on the anim (the icon default tool is set to player)
o Shell: Type Player pf sm lp=0 sl FILE 3Globes.anim
o Press the left arrow to slow it down to 1FPS, space to stop, Amiga-Q to quit,
  right-click for the menu.


Notes
¯¯¯¯¯
o You can use higher FPS values up to 60 but might not look too realistic.
o Playing it with multiview doesn't work well on my Picasso board.
  Perhaps a problem with the picture or anim datatype.


The Story
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
As I was watching the TV series Stargate SG-1 (with the actor from McGyver),
I noticed a display in the background of the briefing room, with three very
similar globes spinning around. 
I thought that it looked really cool so I started looking all over the net for
an MPEG or screen-saver of that anim but couldn't find any.
Eventually I decided to make my own.

At one frame per second, it does look pretty cool on a plat panel display.


Production
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This was modeled and rendered in 30 minutes using Imagine on an Amiga 4000 with
68060-50MHz.

myself, the author.

Urban Müller for keeping Aminet going all these years, Gary, Fleecy and those I
missed for resurrecting the Amiga! Keep up the good work!
