I started a while ago, not with the pionneer DKBtrace, but POVray v1.0.
At that time, I had no Floating Point Accelerator, and to tell you the
truth, doing raytracing was a bit masochistic.
Now please browse through the different pics:
If your browser doesn't support image-maps, you can access my larger POVray pictures through these links:

Four MPEG films done with POVray2.2 and Henrik Bjeregaard Pedersen's MPEG
There are also some mini-apps for Acorn computers:
(Make PPM pictures ready for conversion into an MPEG film with Henrik
Bjeregaard Pedersen's encoder)
8K Zip archive
(Targa to PPM converter. Unlike Creator, can process in batch mode, that
is converts a whole bunch of files with just one drag)
8K Zip archive
(Removes pixels in a Targa pic so it has a whole number of lines - helpful
if a crash occurs during a trace !)
7K Zip archive
These ones are not from me but still useful:
An old app by Mike Williams, allowing to generate torii, cylinders with
rounded edges and necks (hyperboloid clipped by 2 planes I guess).
11K Zip archive
A Un*x conversion of a program that transforms an ASCII list of triangles
and translates it into a POVray shape, optionally very-efficiently bounded.
76 Kb Zip archive
Another Un*x conversion, this time allowing us to generate FLIs on the
arc. Take care that PPMs are 24-bit deep and FLI only 8 !
39 Kb Zip archive
POVRay 3.1g compiled with GCC 3.3.3 and
unixlib, and is 32-bit neutral (Iyonix testing is on the way). Note that
the ZIP archive doesn't include a version with FP acceleration, since
there's no RISC OS machine which can do hardware FP and has a 32-bit
program counter at the moment (404 Kb ZIP file) Updated 12 Jun
See also: POVray 3.1 g for the Arc, compiled with GCC 2.95.4
rel1 and unixlib. You'll need to download the other two archives and
merge them to get the accompanying include files and examples (and the
770 Kb ZIP file
In case of problems, you can download my previous port here (650 Kb ZIP file), which was compiled with
GCC 2.95.2 rel3 and libscl.

utilities by the Miskin 'family'
If you want to share experience, models, techniques, or if you want to
develop scenes in common, I would be glad to hear from you. Also, if you've
designed a utility for povray (RiscOS), send it to me !
