Homework 3 (due 10/4)

Homework is due by class-time on Tuesday.

We covered material from chapters 4 and 5 of the textbook on illumination and shading, and Sections (Lathe/sor) and 2.5.3 (Finish) of the online POV-Ray documentation. Next week we continue with chapter 6 on texture mapping.

I uploaded two new examples of the use of the lathe object: lathe.pov, 3sidedvase.pov together with the other class examples.

1. [Reading Assignment] Read chapters 4 and 5 in Wolfe. 3D Graphics, A Visual Approach.

2. [TERA, 20pt] Answer questions 1-5 on pages 53/54 of the textbook.

3. [finish, 30pt] Answer questions 1-6 on pages 54-55. You will need the files lights.pov and pawn.inc.

4. [POV-Ray, 50pt] Create a POV-Ray scene of a subject of your choice---in the rain.

Feel free to be as creative as you want to be. Grading will be both on technical issues and the quality of the end-product.
