3D Art

POV-Ray is a ray tracing program that was popular in 2000s. There were a few GUI wrappers for 3D design, but the majority of “art” was done by coding geometry from scratch. Here is a sample POV-ray code:

global_settings { assumed_gamma 2.2 }

include “colors.inc”

include “textures.inc”

light_source { <-12, 45, -12> color White }

camera {
direction z
location <0, 6, -10>
look_at <0, 3, 0>
}

// The sea floor
plane { y, 0
pigment { Gray90 }
finish { ambient 0.1 diffuse 0.7 }
}
