  Povray3.7 "pavement" pattern collection (Message 1 to 4 of 4)

I discovered the new "pavement" pattern in Pov 3.7 and I like it. But
the documentation of it is very limited.

So I created a gallery of objects that show all possible pavements and
... found its rule, I think.

I think the documentation should contain an image showing all possible
pavements, in a rendered or in a schematic image.  Visual examples that
show how 'form', 'interior' and 'exterior' influenced the pattern are
still missing.

I'd also like to see a formula for the gradient within each tile.


What do you think?

Thanks, Lars. I made a couple feeble attempts at puzzling out the rules
governing the pavement pattern, but being only halfhearted attempts, I didn't
get very far. Downloaded for future reference!

May be it help also if you look at the examples in:
scenes/templates/Textures_Materials/pavement/__index.htm
and:
scenes/templates/Textures_Materials/tiling/__index.htm

Respective in the Windows version:
insert menu/Pattern 2/ ...
