It's taken a while, but I've removed the limitations reported earlier this
year with the Scroll object. V2.0 at
http://lib.povray.org/collection/scroll/chrisb%202.0/scroll.html is now a
macro with settings that enable you to control almost everything (width.
length radius etc.).
The uv-mapping and normal issues are sorted, so you can add text or any
other pattern (including a tiled image map) and have it follow the scroll
contours. You can specify a seperate interior_texture to get a different
texture on the back. There's are text layout options for justification of
blocks of text, including full justification.
Examples are now included demonstrating how to use it for kitchen rolls,
rolls of wallpaper and tin-foil as well as paper scrolls with writing in
both portrait and landscape mode. There's even an animation example.
