  checking allscene from 3.7 beta 32 (Message 1 to 4 of 4)

Rendered the all scenes shellscript.

(linux sources, ubuntu/amd64)

All my gammas are at 1.0, so do not bother with darkness.

Nevertheless, I have the following points which might be checked:

 * chess2.png : a bit too greenish in the reflection ? (cross of kings, and knights,
white
tower)

 * crackle2.png : a missing fifth blue in the middle raw ? (remind me of a bug with
superellipsoid... probably nothing, but strange )

 * desk4.png : the initial blank frame is still visible, is the recursion limit good
enough ? (each iteration get one more desk in frame, not doubling)

 * samp_demo06.png : the top square between magenta & white is not plain, there is a
grey
& darker pattern. Is it as intended ?

Thanks for your comments.

This *looks* weird, but it may actually be physically correct; in any case it's
seen with POV 3.6 as well.

Again, seen with POV 3.6 as well, and from the scene code it is intentional.
Strange though, indeed; maybe it wouldn't work as an isosurface.

I think it is technically impossible to totally eliminate the blank frame
(except for reducing its size to be no longer discernable).

Can't find that scene among the POV 3.6 samples, so no comparison here; in any
case, it seems to me that the square in question is empty (transparent??), and
that we see the shadow of the block to its right

Render the same with 3.6

Ther's a missing piece in the source. You can recreate it if you want.

Just repeat once more.

That looks like an artefact.

You know you've been raytracing too long when you resign the fact that printing 
uses CMYK instead of RGB to one of those tests God gave to Job; otherwise life 
would be too painful to go on.

This had been removed from the scene during POV-Ray 3.5 development 
since at that time crackle metric 1 worked in a way unsuited for 
isosurfaces (infinite gradient)
