Instuctions for doing this posted to the GRASS lists in Feb:

This may mean I need to install a flash player after all these years.

I think that would be great.

another 3D topic I am now reminded of: automatic generation of MPEG-1
and MPEG-4 (Xvid)* animations directly from NVIZ's keyframe animation

[*] requires "USE_XVID" compile time macro;
    buggy (it's a raw stream that displays with mplayer only)
