POV-Ray & PREditor v. 0.7.2 (PREditor (POV-Ray Qt frontend), 6/3/2016, Mentore Siesto) Readme/What's new
This is the OS/2 port of PovRAY Editor, a Qt frontend to POV-Ray (Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer). If you don't know what POV-Ray is, or never were interested in 3D image and scenes production, you should definitely consult the POV-Ray website at http://www.povray.org/ and the website of this software, located at https://sourceforge.net/projects/preditor/. As for other software ports, I didn't have much time to try it. I can say it open up and calls POV-Ray nicely (thus it SHOULD work fine) but I couldn't try its results - hadn't got time to setup it completely. By the way: I included an executable copy of my POV-Ray 3.6 port, but I know almost for sure that it does not work correctly. It was included only to test the basic functionalities of the software. You can download a complete POV-Ray distribution on hobbes. By the way, I surely will try and port the latest POV-Ray distribution (v.3.7) as soon as I have got enough time and test it thoroughly. As for my other ports, USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. I won't be held responsible for any damage which should occur by using or misusing this software. Even so, I didn't modify nor alter the source code in any way, so it *should* work with the pros and cons of the original distribution. You are welcome to email me with suggestions or criticism about my ports: they will surely come as a help and will be much appreciated. Have fun Mentore Siesto
