So, I managed to get the first step of the wholly SDL-based uv mapping worked
out.

Had to get my head back into "function space" and "pigment space" first, and
then things proceeded with only a few hiccups.

Shown is the image map on a unit square, followed by a unit sphere uv-mapped
with a function pigment, rotated around y by 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees.

Maybe tomorrow I can make some more progress toward non-spherical parametric
objects and see how that goes.

Hi, to make sure I understand correctly, this is pov code only, no bitmap? did
you post the scene somewhere?

Hi Maurice,

The image data comes from png that I made in POV-Ray a while back (I believe I
was trying to recreate TOK's NURBS object....)

IIRC, that's not really relevant - you can create the same png "in memory"
without saving it to a render, and use that as you would any other.

But the code to _uv_map_ the image data onto the sphere is all SDL, not a
mechanism in the source code.   It's just a simple sphere - I haven't had a
chance to elaborate on this any.


It's dirt simple, but it of course took me WAY too long to see the path to
success.  But that IS the path to success, now, isn't it - persistence.
