Good to hear.

Well, sort of.  ;)
but only for 6th-degree polynomials   :D

I'm not really sure what you mean by that.
it ought to be poly {
then a list of xyx (PowerX, PowerY, PowerZ):multiplier terms
}

It's certainly possible that there's a small typo or something in there.

I've had my hands full with a number of other things, but perhaps tomorrow I
will be able to review the spreadsheet and do some testing with scenes in
POV-Ray.


It would be easier for me debug anything or explain where your problems are if
you could post a short scene with the results of the spreadsheet that you copied
into the scene.

Thanks!
