Hi everyone,

I've finally got around to experimenting with HDR images for lighting a 
scene.

The scene was created in the following way:
1) Created Stormtrooper mini-figure model in MLCAD using LDraw parts
2) Used LdrDat2Dxf to export the model to Autocad DXF format
3) Loaded model in PoseRay and used Subdivide feature to round off the 
helmet (it was slightly angular following DXF conversion).
4) Exported the model from PoseRay in POV-Ray
5) Replaced some of the PoseRay colour defintions with colours from LGEO 
Libray Include File
6) Grabbed some HDR files from http://ict.debevec.org/~debevec/Probes 
and mapped these onto a sphere to light the scene.

I think the stormtrooper looks a bit too shiny so I need to dull the 
colours/textures slightly.

I will be adding the POV-Ray source and related downloads to my website 
soon.

Any suggestions welcome.

Bye for now

Legos were never 100% shiny, but it looks good! Some outer edge wear might help.

A legion of these guys with the Darth Vader minifig in front would be cool. I
downloaded your DV model and might try making his saber emit light...

I've now uploaded the POV-Ray source code for my Stormtrooper 
mini-figure (NOTE: this is in POV-Ray 3.7 RC3) - see the following link:
