Hello Alain Martel,
Thank you for your reply. I did what you told me and followed tutorial from wiki
as well. Created different shapes images etc. Changed the code and get different
results and all. But i still didnt understand how to do `opposite` of this. What
i need is (as far as i know, still not sure) using povray on my 3d model scene
and get the raytracing results and use those results in RaySAR to get Sar image
simulation results. Still dont know how to manage it since i am not good with
coding
Thank you again
