Begin with the Documentation. It will lead you to the first image everyone
has produced: reflective sphere on checkered plane (a variation of that
theme is an obligatory first post to PBI).

Then, download some simple scenes (you can judge that by the amount of
objects mainly) and scan through them, try to make sense of them, at least
in parts, and create your own ones based off of what you find.

And THEN, make your very own images, starting with an empty scene-file.

It is, for later days and reviews, good to keep track in your scene file
when the file was initially made, when the last update was done, with which
POV-Ray (3.5 at the moment), Author, etc.

You can find some info on my website, there are descriptions of some files
in my "Past Projects" section, and some scene-files in my "Downloads" (IRTC
Images) and "Gallery v2.0" (sources for those). You'll also find some
Include-Files you might find useful (especially the I/O-Macros to read/write
data arrays).

Regards,
Tim

Subject: Are there any clearinghouses that carry 3rd party povray include files and/or patches, and/or utility programs ?
Date: 24 Oct 2003 10:04:08
Message: <6i7jpvogstvp06mh8fe7coef96r3rqrfqd@4ax.com>
Spotted two possible typos in the tag docs.

1. There maybe an typo in the http://tag.povray.org/povQandT/misconceptions.html page
- The word "obect" might be "object".

2. On the page http://tag.povray.org/povQandT/languageQandT.html, the sentence "There
is a looks_like keyword in the light_source block which allows to easily
attach an object to the light source" may sound a little bit clearer if it is "There
is a looks_like keyword in the light_source block which allows an object to
easily attach to the light source"

Question:

	About 3rd party povray include files and/or patches, and/or povray related utility
programs, are there any websites that act as clearinghouses that carry
them, or at least list and link to them ?

Thanks.
