|POV-Ray Lunar Explorer|
An HD-Quality Lunar Ray-Tracing Script For POV-Ray v3.7
The POV-Ray Lunar Explorer script renders the moon in photo-realistic 3D relief. It can act as a virtual space telescope or spacecraft from which you can render a view of the moon from virtually any perspective in space, from near to far.
The lunar images and lunar phase image sets on this web site were rendered by the POV-Ray Lunar Explorer script, which is freely available on this web site.
The POV-Ray Lunar Explorer download ZIP package comes complete with source code and all required graphics resources included. If you already have POV-Ray v3.7 installed, then the Lunar Explorer script should be ready to run immediately, since everything it needs is initially contained in a single folder.
Since the complete POV-Ray Lunar Explorer package consists of about 166.47 megs, two versions of it are provided as well as optional texture map packages that can be added to the basic set.
The POV-Ray rendering program itself will have to be obtained from the official POV-Ray web site.
POV-Ray v3.7 is an open-source, FREEware graphics rendering software package. It is FREEware. No adware or spyware, just a professional quality 3D rendering package freely available to the public.
