There Are Now NO POVRay Modelers For Linux?

Filed under

NONE? Zero, zip, swabbo, nothing? Empty, the opposite of full?

Because there must be a thousand POVRay front-ends out there that I can find at the end of a Google search, and every last one of them has eliminated itself in some way or another.

* Being mesh-only modelers - Like Wings 3D. It exports to POVRay. Great! But it does that as all mesh2 objects, even a simple sphere. Look, if I want mesh, I'll use Blender. POVRay is for CSG.

These "nodes" can be bidirectionally connected with each other to semantically represent friendship, blood relation, whereabouts, authorship, and so on. Hence the term "semantic graph database," since information can be displayed as a graph of semantically connected nodes. Read more
