1.1.1 Program Description
You know you have been raytracing too long when ...
... You wonder which raytracer God used.
-- David Kraics
The Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer creates three-dimensional, photo-realistic images using a rendering technique
called ray-tracing. It reads in a text file containing information describing the objects and lighting in a scene and
generates an image of that scene from the view point of a camera also described in the text file. Ray-tracing is not a
fast process by any means, but it produces very high quality images with realistic reflections, shading, perspective
and other effects.
