Hi Leroy - good to see you've still got some time and motivation to revisit old
projects and get back into them with new inspiration! :)
I haven't had a chance to play with the program(s), but I'm assuming that you
use sliders, etc to create a color_map to paste into a POV scene file.
That's great, but usually those color_maps are used in a pattern, and that's
what's always been less than intuitive and hard to visualize (for me).
I'm not sure the regions of certain patterns are always represented evenly /
equally / linearly --- so maybe the values near 0 and 1 dominate the pattern,
or the value near 0.5 does.
I think in addition to solely the color_map, a pattern visualizer would be
useful so that you could apply the color_map to a pattern and adjust it with
feedback in real time. That would be a HUGE step forward in developing
It's where I was aiming at with this little project:
