  Is there a patch for allowing radiosity calculations on no_image objects? (Message 1 to 2 of 2)

Hello,

I am trying to use PovRay to generate some radiosity lightmaps for game
levels (realtime opengl scenes), and to do that I need to render each
polygon separatelly using an orthographic projection, while all other
polygons are rendered with the no_image flag but with those objects
generating radiosity data onto the "current" polygon.

I was wondering if perhaps someone had already writen such a patch, or if
not, how hard would it be to write one? I could try (and if fact I would if
there is no patch available) to do it myself, but you know, no need to
reinvent the wheel.

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, I found out MegaPov does apply radiosity when the no_image flag
is set, any chances for the no_radiosity patch to make it into PovRay?
