I think me and Ant need to make a new logo for our site. So does anyone know a good logo maker we can use?

POV-Ray is an excellent program (it's a ray-tracing program w/ lotsa features - you describe a 3-d scene in a text file using the easy-to-learn POV scene language - you can even do animations). best of all it's free!.

Blender would work well also (probably more robust & more worthwhile to learn than POV, although i think it's more difficult).

try openfx as well!

POV is easy, but takes a little reading/learning. after learning POV and now getting into Blender, i suggest that you get & learn Blender - much more powerful & relevant. spend the $$$ on the manual if you can, or go through the many, many tutorials.

also, search Blenders discussion forums for "hotkey" - that will help you

POV-Ray is a freeware ray-tracing program.

check out www.povray.org

it has it's own text-based scene language,
easy to learn, and the windows interface
makes things more easy.

but, Blender, IMHO, is superior because of its
modeller and real-time animation.

POV is a useful tool, though, it's very
powerful & interesting

If you want to get started, maybe go look for moray, a modeller designed specifically for povray. it's free or shareware, if I remember right. It cannot, of course, unleash the full power of the povray language.

coax - it's been too long since i've used POV, but i will try. there is an excellent mailing list that you can join, too.

POV tutorial... is that a separate executable than the POV program? the only tutorials i know of are in the POV documentation... it helped me to print the documentation out.

(note: i printed the documentation once... formatted the page to print landscape, font was 5pts i think, and printed 2 columns on each page. the printout is an inch thick!!!

don't let that scare you, though. POV isn't that hard to learn, and like i said, the windows program helps alot.)
