    A few points about this animation.

    First, it was created with Pangolin's Lasershow Converter MAX. Someone with the original source file (not the ILDA file, but the source file) could easily change it, and then re-render it. Alternatively someone could re-create it from scratch using MAX or Cinema 4D.

    Second and more importantly, this animation was originally made by Lightspeed Design Group. It is covered under a license agreement. Some person purchased it from Lightspeed with the agreement not to distribute it further. Well, that "some person" obviously did distribute it further, placing that "some person" at risk.

    Lightspeed has already successfully taken action against a company in China that was distributing Lightspeed content without authorization to do so... This particular file has no business being in a public forum.

    Best regards,

    William Benner

    Thanks Ollie!

    I also mentioned the file to Rob, the Admin of this forum. Also, the very first post (sticky) in this forum tells people not to upload copyrighted content.

    I appreciate that there might be a lot of frames out there, for which nobody really knows where they came from. But I think it's a good idea that -- if you don't know where it came from, don't propagate it further. If it looks like professionally-made artwork, it probably is .

    Hey Bill,

    it might be easier to deal with all this sort of thing if the next version of the ILDA file format had a metadata chunk that could tell you about the creators of the file and their intended licensing agreement. Not DRM (that would obviously break compatibility, limit exportability, and anyway we won the DRM battle) but just copyright and distribution info.


    Something you ILDAnauts might like to think about :-)

    I think it would be, essentially, impossible to truly "extend" the ILDA format beyond where it is now, without the great probability of "breaking" people along the way. Rather, what is needed is a whole new ILDA format based on newer-style "tagged" file format ideas, which could be extended much easier in the future. This has been discussed (in fact, even discussed when formats 3, 4 and 5 were being debated in 2002) but, sadly, the activity in the ILDA Technical Committee these days is at a stand-still. (I was going to write "snail's pace" but a snail moves 50MPH compared to the current ILDA Technical Committee...)
