I'm heading out to Reno tomorrow for a few days for SC07. For the past few months a few of us have been working with POVRay to create files for groups of students to render out on supercomputer clusters that they have built for the conference, as part of a competition. Should be fun, and a little different than my last school trip.
Here is a test render/animation of some of the things that I have been doing lately. Click the image to view the video. The link might take a while to load, its about 12megs or so, so give a sec. But it only took about 12 hours to render 30 seconds of footage on my little iBook G4.
If you are interested in the source code, let me know and I will send it to you. I would post it, but I have been constantly working on it and tweaking it, and by the time I post it, I will have made some change to it. So just let me know and I will pass it on to you.
