POV-Ray (Persistence of Vision Raytracer) is a smart, reliable, high-quality and yet totally free utility for creating stunning three-dimensional graphics.
The Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer creates three-dimensional, photo-realistic images using a rendering technique called ray-tracing. It reads in a text file containing information describing the objects and lighting in a scene and generates an image of that scene from the view point of a camera also described in the text file.
Ray-tracing is not a fast process by any means, but it produces very high quality images with realistic reflections, shading, perspective and other effects.
Smart and powerful tool that creates three-dimensional, photo-realistic images using a special rendering technique called ray-tracing.
