HTTPov: A distributed
POV-Ray rendering system

What, why and where? IQ

Why did I create HTTPov?

When I began working on a long POV-Ray animation, I soon realised that there was no way I could render it on my computer. I'd have a chance if I pooled all my computers together, and asked a couple of friends for help, but it would take tremendous amounts of work to divide the rendering into appropriately sized chunks, convince my friends to run them and get them back. How about automatic systems, then? There are more than a few systems out there that are quite capable of distributing POV-Ray jobs:

That was the most obvious bunch, I believe, when I started working on HTTPov. I foolishly thought that I could create a just as complicated system myself, and sat down by my computer, with my animation project and a good cup of tea.
