The Persistence of Vision Raytracer has its home on the web at
www.povray.org. At that
site you can obtain more resources than we offer you with
respect to using POV-Ray. In particular, the povray.org
news server (also via
nntp) has many tens of
thousands of messages from users and operates as an extremely
effective peer support system.
Note that if you have never used a raytracer before, you may be
surprised at the way POV-Ray works - it is not a 'typical' 3d application
which provides a point-and-click graphical interface. If you have any doubt
about what can be done with a program like this, though, all you need to do
is visit our Hall of Fame.
