- Material library and material sample viewer. Includes a simple utility that
reads a material list and generates a formatted POV scene for the viewer.
Info.txt has additional information for creating and using.
- I'm sure something like this has been done. I wrote this to help organize a
growing material count and for building, comparing, and tweaking.
Mike.

Hi, Mike.
Thank you very much for sharing this viewer ! This is exactly what I
was looking for and tried to implement somehow, but your variant is much
more complete and useful.
Now I've included it in my sketchbook:
https://povlab.online/?scene=materials/samples_default.pov

Maybe I will break it into a few parts for better performance...

While playing with them I found that in file 'samples_default.pov'
there is duplicated index '603' which masks beautiful 'M_ground_sky' )).
-----------------------------------------------------
#declare mat_array [603][0] = "M_ground_sky" ;
#declare mat_array [603][1] = M_ground_sky ;

#declare mat_array [603][0] = "M_ground_sky_chrome" ;
#declare mat_array [603][1] = M_ground_sky_chrome ;
-----------------------------------------------------
