This is my raytracing gallery. All images were produced in various versions of POV, a free raytracing package. The majority of the images were produced for the IRTC.
As well as complete images, you'll find a few utilities, such as a calender include file.

Ooo - a utility! This is an include-file that can generate a day-of-the-week-calender-month text object for any arbitary year/month.
Several options, including the ability to specify another object to be attached to a particular date, and to specify a day-of-week offset.
Sample scene is included (the rather awful jpg-mashed image used here). For the sample scene, the following params were used:
/* Params for MakeCal: Year = Gregorian Year [int] Month = Gregorian Month [int 1 -12] MarkDay = if not 0, unions CalObj with that day CalXOff = space between dates [num] CalYoff = space between rows [num] CalFont = font to use [string] CalExt = extrusion on text object [num] CalSpace = inter-char spacing [num] DayOff = day off-set, [num] 0=sunday, 1=monday, ... 6=saturday CenterOff = x-adjust for month-year header [num] adjust for centering of heading CalObj = object to use at Day */ MakeCal(2002,5,23,2.0,1.0,"c:/windows/fonts/arial.ttf",1,0,6,2.6, myObj)

Playing about with media (gas, liquids, etc.)
Love that shit kicking music...
Came across this by accident one day... (no source :( )
Early play with 3.1 media.
A color chart for colors.inc - really unsuitable for jpeg format.
Most patterns - I've avoided those that are only useful in media. In general the pattern scale is 0.2 on a 0.35 radius sphere. Black represents a pattern value of 0, White 1, with varying shades of grey as intermediate values.
