Interpolation with respect to media... Not completely sure what you 
mean, but, there are directions on my wiki page at:


Though the branches available are out of date on it(1). You can get a 
current list of published branches on github. A graph/network view be 
seen by going to:


and you can also see a list using the branch switching list-pick button 
on the page:


You have to be in a position to build your own *nix versions of POV-Ray 
If you're not, well, what I have out there today isn't going to be 
useful to you.

You need to have git installed and to have a local clone of povray to 
follow the pick and chose branches to merge into your personal version 
of POV-Ray method on the wiki. If you are compiling via download and 
just want to try a single branch, you can switch to it, download the 
branch to your machine & compile normally.

(1) - The inability to add new links to discussion and documentation 
made the wiki much less useful - and I've more or less just been letting 
my pages sit as is for long time.
