DESCRIPTION OF HOW THIS IMAGE WAS CREATED:
The scene has been composed for povray beta version 3.1 for Windows.
I use the new function MACRO to programmate the followings macros :
- rotation : rotation matrix calculation.
In entry : one array and one counter. The array contains the data of
the rotations and the counter "increments" the rows of the array.
Each array's row is the data of a rotation. These data are :
X,Y and Z coordinates of a vector, angle of rotation.
The direction of the rotation is give by the joke corkscrew law.
- miny1, miny2, miny3, miny4.
You need these macros to calculate the exact value of the Y axis
translation to put a "rotationned" polyhedron on the plane Y=0.
The polyhedron is give by the X,Y and Z coordinates of its vertex.
The entry data are :
- the rotation(s) array(s),
- the polyhedron coordinates array.
