LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released
#39
POVRay documentation on gamma:
http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documenta...a_Handling
It is especially important to do a test render on your own hardware of file
scenes/gamma/gamma_showcase.pov
, coming with POVRay.
The images within the documentation are just for illustration.

However, the above documentation seems to have been written for pre-3.7 versions :-(

For me now, with POVRay 3.7, playing around a lot, it has proven best to use
Code:
#version 3.7;
global_settings { assumed_gamma 2.2 }
at the beginning of my LDView-output-POV files.

However, I do not know how an older POVRay version (e.g. 3.5) will react on the
#version 3.7;
directive, it could reject the file as "too new for me".
Writing something like this
Code:
#if (version >= 3.7)
   #version 3.7;
   global_settings { assumed_gamma 2.2 }
#else
   // put something else here?, e.g.
#end
is impossible, because version 3.7 will complain about that the #version statement is not the first.

Thus, I think the only way to satisfy both users of older and newer POVRay versions,
the output of both version and gamma number should be made optional, and user configurable,
like the other settings (e.g. reflection amount etc. pp.)
