Anybody programming for Polyray?

I am a Polyray-fan.

I was trained to program in Pascal and have started some time ago in C++ in
Windows.I have written a lot of "script-generating" algoritms for Polyray, and
intend to accellerate my MFC-learning curve by writing a polyray-modeller
under Windows-NT.

Anybody with interesting ideas for script-generators or
modelling-programs,(Especially in Polyr.) are welcome to send a message.

(I would also be intersted in any *.pi files for polyray,IF you would care to
share and think I will find it amusing,intellectually stimulaing, relevant,
perplexing, blah,blah.. :> )

I like POLYRAY too... it was always sort of a half step ahead of POVray
until POV 3.0 came out.  Alexander (Xander) doesn't seem to be too hot
to support it as much anymore- ah well.  I still use it.
My homepage and La Musique Petite challenge have moved to:


1. Anybody using Polyray?

: I first "discovered" raytracing using Polyray 5 years ago, then switched
: to POV because it was a little bit easier to use.  Now I've checked back
: in on Polyray and am quite impressed with features like procedural
: [...]

It's been awhile since I did any tracings, but I think Polyray is a
great program. I particularly like the true cylindrical and spherical
heightfields it offers. Xander, if you're listening, any chance on you
releasing your algorithm ? :-)
