This movie is simply fantastic. If I didn't know you were working with DEMs, I would swear you were actually going to Mars in your own spaceship and taking your movies in situ.
Could you post a vertical view of the area showing the camera path?

Excellent! Was Candor's topography the main reason MSL got cold feet for this site, or are the remaining 4 sites much more promising for mission objectives?

I've added the path manually in photoshop so its not 100% accurate. I'll try and get the software to automatically generate this kind of thing for future animations.
Path
The animation starts bottom left.

Thanks a lot for the path! That's exactly what I was hoping for.

An idea just jumped into my mind. What if you added in a corner of your flyovers a vertical view of the area showing the path travelled and a moving dot indicating the camera location? A bit like what we see in computer games.

This is just a suggestion. It may not be easily feasible, and I can't even imagine the work needed already to create your flyovers, so don't think that I want to lay a burden on you, especially since I am a complete ignorant on the subject.

I've added that now. I'm not sure if I'll show it in future animations but its a nice feature to have.

I have only now seen this last animation, after checking the latest entry on Emily's blog (Unbelievably spectacular flight through Candor Chasma) and I truly think that such title is 100% right! It's an incredible experience.

I think this one expressed me perfectly when I saw that video:

I half-thought about using it as an avatar, but I figured it's rather distracting.

Heres some new animations:

Olympus Mons Basal Scarp
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcS_dftaE5U
produced from this data
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/dtm/dtm.php?ID=PSP_001432_2015

Eberswalde crater inverted channel
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc0Kz12bTPw
Eberswalde crater moutain
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omLZdswu44U
These two animations were produced from the data here http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/dtm/dtm.php?ID=PSP_008272_1560. I am probably outside the MSL landing elipse with those animations but I am just picking the interesting scenery smile.gif

I can now produce youtube animations in analygraph 3d using youtubes new 3d feature. This is just a test video of candor chasma to see if it works. You'll need the coloured glasses to see the 3d effect.

Incredible, you've stepped things up from the previous animations quite significantly. I love the FOV\context map and the altitude\speed indicators, they really help put everything in context. I've always wanted to wander around the Olympus Mons Basal Scarp but I never thought it would be as dramatic as this.

Pure gold.

Amazing earlier animation of Candor Chasma - looks like being there, somewhat like parts of Utah. I looked on Google Mars to try and get some context for where this is:

I wonder if more images and DEMS will eventually be available in this area?
