Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

What do you think?  I am no povray expert.  I used it a year ago for about a week, and picked it up again a couple days ago.  Hope you like it.

Well, this is fat. Great work. How long did that take to render?

Re: Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

neri,

Thanks.  I think it took about 35 or 40 minutes to render on my 1.4 GHz T-Bird.  Also, gqview and gimp show it much darker than the images that I first posted here, and it looks better that way, so I darkened it a bit and increased the contrast with the gimp.  If you look at it again, it should look better.

For those interested, in the spirit of open source smile, here is the .pov:

Re: Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

If anyone wants it, here is the povray command and arguments to render that particular image, where <FILE> is the name you saved the file as, for example arch.pov, and <OUT> is the name of the output file, arch.png for example.

povray -geometry +0+0 +V +X +P +A0.3 +AM2 -P +FN +V +D +W1024 +H768 +HTN +L/usr/share/povray-3.5/include/ +I<FILE> +O$<OUT>

Re: Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

Is it working ok now?  Sometimes my server is hard to reach since I have to use noip.com to forward requests to my IP address.  Please let me know whether or not it is working so I can fix it if it is not.

Re: Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

OOOooooo ..... nice.

Don't know if you're open to some suggestions?  I'm wondering if you can reduce/move the light source a little to give the glass-arch more internal detail/depth? I think it might also give the misty-blue bottom a wider spectrum of richer hue's?

I'm definitely _no_ expert!

Cheers and awesome artwork.

Re: Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

hey, if u want to, u can try hosting your image at photobucket.com - should get better reliability that way. I'm still waiting to see the pic...

Re: Made an ArchLinux wallpaper image using povray

Can someone post a mirror of that image (mirror image, heh) to another site?  I can't connect to the server either.  I'm looking forward to seeing this, though; povray is the absolute rockin'est raytracer in the world.  Why, I remember when it was DKBtrace back in the 80s.... trails off incoherently

Heh, it's probably gone since this thread is over 4 years old. big_smile  I don't have a copy, but maybe someone else does.
