HDR Animation Contest

Apologies for the cross-posting, but there isn't 100% overlap on these lists...

BrightSide Technologies is having an HDR animation contest for all those who are interested in participating:

The field is wide open as near as I can tell.

Since Radiance naturally produces HDR output, perhaps someone has a nice walk-through or other animation they would like to submit? I created one using the SFO air traffic control tower, but it wasn't a serious entry. The field is wide open as near as I can tell.

Sounds interesting. But what a shame their MPEG-HDR encoder only runs
under Windows XP. That leaves out us Linux, BSD, and OS X users. Oh well.

Out of interest, what platforms do people here use? I presume it's mostly
Unix and Unix-like.

Hi Ian,

I didn't realize they only had a Windows version -- they should have at least have a Linux edition, since that was where it was developed (as I understand it). Hopefully, they will add MPEG-HDR encoder libraries for Linux and OS X in the near future. Don't let this stop you, though. You can always generate a sequence of HDR frames and figure it out later.
