Great page! Love the animations. What software tools did you use to create them? Is there a way to export animations from StarCD directly into MPEG or some other video format?

Re: Turbomachinery with Star-Cd
The technical part is very easy. Just use the "scdu" to dumb out the pictures in RGB or GIF fomat ant then use moviemaker/movieconvert. These are the front-ends of dmconvert which is shipped with every SGI. Maybe you have to ensure that there are even numbers of lines and columns before creating the mpeg but I'm not sure.

(1). Try to type " Francis Turbine Runner" into an Inerenet search site, you should be able to find some information. (2). I came across a paper by Albert Ruprecht, University of Stuttgart, check the web site:
