Project - POVRay Experiments


POVRAY is an excellent, free ray-tracer that's been around for a few years now. There is a huge amount of POVRAY related-material on the net, which pursuaded me to give it a try.

POVRAY has it's own scene description language that is structured in similar way to modern programming languages. In a way, you're writing a program to produce to a final image - this appeals to me a great deal. Some amazing images can be created from a relatively small amount of POVRAY code.

Visit the official POVRAY Home Page to download the latest version.

Test Renders

I like to 'doodle' in order to test POVRAY features and develop techniques. More often than not, this produces pleasing images. I'll be posting them here as they can make interesting desktop wallpapers.
