Harry Potter Opening (Sep 18, 2006)

Have you seen my speculation of the opening to the next Harry Potter movie? It’s an old render; I had to compress it from a hundred MB’s. That blotch at the end should be a broomstick.

Square-1 Animation (Aug 27, 2006)

August 27: I present the first-ever raytraced -perhaps even the first truly rendered- animation of a Square-1, the two-edge parity. More algorithms, and POV-Ray source code, will follow.

August 27: Updated the records page. And uploaded a Square-1 animation of my other blindfolded alg.

August 27: All the thrill of Square-1 animation, now brought to you in LG3D!

August 27: Lars Vandenbergh gave me permission to render all of his algorithms. Here is a preview of what each video will look like.

August 31:

I posted all the layer-solving MP4′s. The others are a matter of more automation; expect them Friday. I’m trying to fit everything into one gigantic batch calling lots of files.

Corners into layer: 1 2 3 4 5
Edges into layer: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Corner permutation (only one for now): 1 Test the embedded version.

September 1: The algorithms are rendered. You can get everything as one large zip file.

September 2: The Square-1 algorithm page now contains a thumbnail of each case, and the zip contains embedded HTML files for each step. They’re going to stay final for a while.
